The Midway Gallery Grand Opening: ODDITIES

26 May, 2015

Dig in Magazine is thrilled to announce and support the Grand Opening of THE MIDWAY GALLERY this Friday, May 29th from 6:00pm – Midnight at The Midway SF 900 Marin Street, San Francisco, California 94124.

Weird, wildly wonderful, crazy-beautiful, unusually eccentric, eerily elegant, freakishly phantasmagorical, fabulous, fantastical, and so much more. “Oddities: A Show to Celebrate the Strange” features artists from New York, Philadelphia, Montreal, Los Angeles, Oakland and, of course, San Francisco. Plus, get the first peek at a brand-new, jaw-dropping, multifaceted creative space that will open its multitude of doors later this year in San Francisco’s burgeoning Dogpatch neighborhood.  Drinks, music, and art will all be on offer at this GRAND OPENING of the Gallery space at The Midway.

Equal parts creative laboratory and performance space, The Midway is a sprawling 40,000 square-foot venue for the public to engage with a variety of exhibitions, workshops, performances and special events. Central to its mission is to partner with nonprofit organizations in order to build a stronger and more vibrant creative community in the Bay Area.
