Zephyr Real Estate Partners with ArtSpan to Showcase Local Artists in 2018 Calendar

SAN FRANCISCO, May 08, 2017 — Zephyr Real Estate has annually produced a themed calendar based on local culture and lore since 1993. A few years ago, Zephyr upped the ante by including a charitable contribution to those organizations connected to the features in the calendars.

For the 2018 calendar, an alliance has been formed with ArtSpan to feature local art and artists. ArtSpan, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to developing a world-class art community in San Francisco. Artists are given opportunities to display their work and make connections with those who appreciate art and those who want to support it.

In its 42nd year, ArtSpan’s is the oldest open-studios program in the U.S., and displays the works of over 800 up-and-coming artists in their annual art event spanning five weekends in October and November. Within that broader scope, ArtSpan also offers Youth Open Studios for artists under the age of 18 years. Sites include Boys Girls Clubs, Kids Art Foundation, Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, and Public Glass. ArtSpan Art Bridge Benefit Auction at SOMArts was held in March, and Zephyr proudly stepped up as one of several sponsors for the event, and thus the alliance was formed.

“We see this partnership as a great opportunity for ArtSpan artists to get their work seen by a new population of San Francisco homeowners – particularly those in need of artwork for their new walls. In line with our ‘Art Builds Bridges’ theme, it is our hope that this partnership will be a means of connecting local artists with art buyers and new clientele. ArtSpan artists come from a variety of backgrounds, and create artwork with a wide range of mediums and themes,” commented Joen Madonna, Executive Director of ArtSpan. “Sourcing the 2018 calendar artwork from ArtSpan promises to produce a quality collection of intriguing imagery for Zephyr clients all year round. We hope that this will encourage new residents and homebuyers to purchase locally when seeking artwork, and will act as a guide to finding local artwork to match their new home decor.”

At Zephyr, once a theme is chosen for the calendar, the real work begins with research, photographer schedules, permits and countless details to be arranged. This year, ArtSpan will provide the art, artist and professional photography for the calendar, resulting in a reduction of production costs for Zephyr. Zephyr, in turn, will pass those savings along to ArtSpan to augment the contribution.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to work closely with local artists and support their endeavors in our community,” commented Melody Foster, Vice President of Marketing for Zephyr. “We are already planning an increase in the production quantity as we anticipate a high demand for this calendar.”

The 2017 calendar featured Secret Gardens of San Francisco, and the beneficiary of the donation was Neighborhood Beautification Program (Community Challenge Grant Program), which donates funds to communities, businesses, schools and nonprofits to help improve their neighborhood’s public spaces. In 2016, the Forgotten Monuments and Landmarks calendar resulted in a donation to the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society. Love Your Parklets, the 2015 calendar, benefited the San Francisco Parks Alliance. In 2014, Mosaics generated a donation to the San Francisco Arts Commission.
