OWA-AIA Reception April 30th

by Darlene Jang

The OWA Steering Committee and Event Committee would like to host a no fee reception on Thursday, 30 April from 5:30- 7:30 pm during the AIA National Convention in San Francisco for OWA members and their guests. We think it would be an excellent opportunity for the OWA members meet other woman and other architects from 50 states and to exhibit their work and expose OWA to the architectural community. We have a chance to show not only the history of our organization but, also the immense effect women have had on the architecture throughout the world. Inge Horton has graciously offered to lend us her historic pictures and posters of OWA and of Women in Architecture for this event. This is a great opportunity for all of us to demonstrate to the terrific work we are doing in San Francisco, the Bay Area, and beyond. Additionally, this is another occasion to socialize with OWA members yet, also meet new people in the architecture and design community.

The reception would be held at the Educated Palate Restaurant at the San Francisco City College Downtown Campus, 88 Fourth Street at Mission Street. The students from the Culinary Arts Program of City College will create a terrific menu of hors d'oeuvers using an architectural theme. The reception room will have 20-30 easels showcasing the work of our members on a 30" x 30" board mounted to 3/16” black foam core. Those interested in submitting exhibition boards, can email their interest in advance to to hold an easel and place for their exhibit board.

For the 30 x 30 board, please place your name or the firms (if applicable) at the bottom right hand corner of the board along with address and/or website. Deliver your board in protective paper wrap to the office of Barcelon & Jang, 315 Bay Street, 3 Floor, San Francisco, CA 94133. Call 415-834-0248 if you need other arrangements. Deadline for receiving boards shall be on or before April 24, 2009, 6 pm. The fee for submitting boards will be $15.00/board.

For those submitting boards as well as other members are also welcomed to display their work on a PowerPoint presentation that will flash on a screen in the restaurant during the reception. Email or submit a CD with digital jpeg images 300 dpi, limit 4 images per member. The fee for the PowerPoint presentation is $10.00/project.

The College has offered to keep the board exhibit for the duration of the AIA Convention so others passing by will have a chance to view member's work. We would like to solicit as many members as possible to submit work in either format for this reception. AIA National Convention is approaching quickly and the members of the OWA have a unique opportunity to showcase their work and publicize the success of our organization.

Please come and share in this event.
