Don’t forget to check out our Tender Calendar for more cool events this week

  • Remember the koi fishes that popped up all over the sidewalks of the neighborhood back in November? We were all really excited, and in spite of the layer of grime that tends to cover our sidewalks, many of them are still enjoyable to look at and often make our day. Well, tonight at farm:table you’ll be able to meet the artist responsible for filling up our lives with black, orange and white fishes. Yes, as part of their bi-monthly One Night Shows (now called f:art, please let the jokes begin), Jeremy Novy himself will tell you all the secrets about the koi, painting in the Tenderloin and maybe even share a beer with you. farm:table, 754 Post (at Leavenworth). 7-9pm
  • Once you’ve shown your admiration for Jeremy Novy’s fishes, head down one block to Geary. As part of the closing of Sara Christian‘s “Shy Peacocks” show, Kokoro Studio will host a screening of selected animated short films. The two hour program explores the blurring lines between film, art and animation. The program, curated by our Tender author Sun and an animator himself, will include shorts from all over the world including Italy, UK, Holland, Russia and South Korea. Some of the highlights are MichaĆ«l Dudok De Wit’s “Father and Daughter“, Joanna Quinn’s “Dreams and Desire: Family Ties“, Simone Massi’s “La Memoria Dei Cani” and Svetlana Filippova’s “Three Love Stories“.
