This year's Masterpiece Tour for San Francisco's Private Collections will be held at SOMA's St. Joseph's Art Society.  Founded by interior designer Ken Fulk, the society is housed in a Neo-Romanesque landmark in the SOMA district. After years of neglect and abandonment, the former Catholic church built in 1913 has been resurrected. It is now a sanctuary for artists, patrons, and the community.  Masterpiece guests touring the voluminous 22,000-square-foot structure will be enchanted by the sights.

From the mezzanine walkway, six full-scale black bears by Dutch artists Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren stand guard. On the ground floor, St. Joseph's mixes rotating art exhibits with an Assouline bookstore and Buly 1803 apothecary.  Upstairs London's Carpenters Workshop Gallery operates an atelier showcasing functional sculptures by international rising and already established artists and designers.  

The magical mystery tour of St. Joseph Art Society Collection happens April 30, 2019, at 4:30 p.m.
