A Benefit for Alan Forbes

November 14, 2013

On Monday, October 21st, Alan Forbes, a prolific San Francisco-based rock music poster artist, was attacked in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco. The attack left him with two skull fractures and damage to his right eye. As do a lot of artists, he has no insurance to cover the growing medical expenses. To help cover the medical expenses there are two benefit shows set up in San Francisco as well as other fundraisers. Each show will have silent auctions.

Poster orders can be made here.
