Teeming with tech start-ups, culturally centered neighborhoods, and world-class art institutions, San Francisco is a haven for cutting-edge design. This year with FOG Design+Art, the city’s design credo is only enhanced; in honor of the fair we take a look at five of SF’s top design galleries.”

“The FOG Design+Art fair premiers next week, and I’m very excited that it will bring attention to contemporary art and design from a Bay Area perspective. For a region that prides itself on innovation and cultural awareness, it will be interesting to see what works resonate in this climate.”
“In the first group, I organized a few works that bring forward issues of context and identity associated with place. The selected artists and designers created works that capture a sense of distinct location, even when the work does not address a specific place.” SFMOMA A+D Head
