    Comment by AB: Yet another satisfying episode of FOG Design + Art at Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco. Special thanks to SFMOMA for their significant support. Experience how modern design blends seamlessly with contemporary and modern art courtesy of top domestic and international galleries and dealers. Early iterations of the fair showed more design than art, but now that narrative has flipped with the quest to own contemporary art eclipsing pretty much every conceivable collecting discipline out there. Will this craze ever end? Only the psychics know for sure. In the meantime, there's no better way to upgrade your lifestyle with the best in fine and decorative arts. Here's a small sampling of this year's impressive array of oeuvres...
