FIRST SAN FRANCISCO RENDEZVOUS - SAT 16 JULY

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Match Box Projects - Encounter San Francisco - Flower Piano/SF Botanical Gardens - Leanne Shedlezki and Naomi Shedlezki

Our first Pop Up will be at the amazing Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park

SATURDAY 16 JULY
9.15am - 10.15am

2nd Piano
No 2 piano is quite near the Main Gate entrance to the Botanical Gardens on 9th ave near Lincoln Way.

Join us to hear one of our matchbox collaborators who we encountered today play the piano at the 2nd Piano. Pick up a matchbox, create one on the spot or deliver one you have already made at the same time.

ENTRANCE TO THE GARDEN
Everyone: Free entry from 7.30-9am

San Francisco Residents: Always free. Show them your ID at the front gate or a bill with your name on it to a residential address in San Francisco and you have free entry every day. They do suggest a $2 donation - definitely worth it and highly recommended!

Non SF residents: $8.00/person after 9am or look into getting a yearly membership

We can be contacted on 646-512-0530 or via matchboxprojects[at]gmail.com. But we do not know whether there will be good reception whilst in the park!

After you spend time with us in the park, we recommend you stay and enjoy the amazing Flower Piano events happening within the gardens. 12 days, 12 pianos until 18 July!
