Game: CEO: San
Diego Fine Art Society
Game is the Founder and Executive Director of the San Diego Fine Art
Society, a nonprofit organization started in October 2007. Of the Society's
activities, she is most proud of the Mentor Program, which is working
closely with artists to help them discover and achieve their dreams.
With a background in gallery management, fine art research and art appraisal,
she created the Society to better help artists understand who influences
their career and how to "prepare for yes" in their professional
lives; to help collectors express their personality and interests by
building a collection of the art of their time and place; and to help
the business and art come together in a strong and vital fusion that
enriches the city.
#1 What is your highlight Visual art experience from the last year?
"Creating the San Diego Fine Art Society! Our mission and goals
are being carried out through exhibitions like our collaboration with
Quail Botanical Gardens in Encinitas, where we've installed a new and
unprecedented display of large sculpture including many former Urban
Trees. Our one year anniversary gala was attended by more than 200 people
who support our work. Partnering with Family Health Centers will help
fill health care facilities throughout the county with regional art.
Partnering with Sharp will help their Arts and Healing Program thrive
with an artist volunteer corps painting at the bedsides of patients
in long-term care."
#2 What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?
#2 "San Diego County has 3 million residents and the 1.1 million
visitors annually. I would create a large-scale, first-rate art gallery,
studio and event space in the heart of downtown's tourist and convention
district exclusively to showcase the best regional fine art. A vibrant
cultural venue such as this would increase the perception and the reality
of San Diego as a visual arts destination comparable to other cities
of similar wealth and size."
