Guests were given the opportunity to build their personal art collection, discover rising art stars and support local artists. For decades, this popular SDAI event has enjoyed a cult-like following among budding collectors looking to test their eye and fill their walls. This year, the C-NOTE returned with a thoughtfully curated experience offering entry-level art collectors a unique opportunity to discover emerging San Diego and Tijuana contemporary artists and to purchase their work for just $100, $200 and $300. An expert panel of jurors hand-selected over 200 one-of-a-kind pieces from over 50 local working artists. From large-scale paintings and photography to found object and multimedia works, a diverse range of contemporary art was on display and up for grabs. Live entertainment, complimentary sweets, and specialty champagne cocktails while you shop.

In partnership with SDAI, Vanguard Culture presented delicious art-inspired bites by “Vanguard Culture Culinary Director Chef Daniella de la Puente and complimentary portraits by internationally acclaimed photographer Josue Castro.
