The Art's and Silicon Valley gathered an intimate group of art collectors, artists and trustees to discuss the presence of art in Silicon Valley. Guests were greeted by an array of bites, chilled white wines by Rodney Strong and unique scotch expressions by Edrington's The Glenrothes label. The evening kicked-off with informal home tours of the stunning modern residence led by the architect himself, Takashi Yanai. Guests migrated to the backyard where Editor-in-Chief, Carolyne Zinko led a panel discussion with five of the most influential names in the Bay Area art scene including Evan Beard, National Art Services Executive from Bank of America Private Bank, Eche Martinez, interior designer and founder of ECHE, Komal Shah, Art Collector and Trustee at the SFMOMA, Liz Sullivan, President of the Pace Gallery in Palo Alto, and Takashi Yanai, Partner of Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects. The panelists examined how art is collected by Silicon Valley's biggest players in tech and role art plays within this wealthy community. The night concluded with more mingling and Yanai signing complimentary copies of his book, Ehrlich Yanai Outside-In.
