Reminders to PRS members:
BOARD COMMITTEE UPDATES
Tour SFMOMA on the second Thursday of each month. To meet other PRS members, gather at 4:30 PM on the second floor at the large stairway leading up to the third floor. This is an informal event; you are welcome to start earlier, or later, and perhaps to check out other nearby exhibitions or dining opportunities.
Is social media a mystery to you, or do you want to use it better to promote your art? Watch for an upcoming live Zoom event on Social Media for PRS members.
