A time-honored San Francisco art tradition is once again preparing to mount for another year: Private Collections 2017 will begin April 5, offering the public the chance to enjoy some of the finest art and luxury real estate of some of the city’s greatest and most passionate art collectors.

A good cause with a legacy  
Entering its 17th year, Private Collections is committed to raising awareness for Enterprise for High School Students – a youth development program guiding teenagers to learning and career opportunities – through the support of the Bay area’s most committed art collectors. From the refined to the challenging and off-beat, each collection offers a peek into the world of its owner – as well as artists, gallerists and curators – and is notable for a thoughtful and selective curation.

Each stop is a unique world of aesthetic pleasure.
