REVIEWER'S RECEPTION

(BY INVITATION ONLY)

Saturday, 10 September

18:30 – 20:00

 

THE CITY CLUB OF SAN FRANCISCO

155 Sansome Street, 10th Floor | San Francisco | California

 

As a special thank you to the Interspeech 2016 Reviewers, we invite you to the City Club of San Francisco, formerly the Stock Exchange Tower. The 11-story building opened just one year after the stock market crash and housed the offices of brokers who worked on the trading floor of the adjacent San Francisco Stock Exchange. The architect Timothy Pflueger believed that great art should be an integral part of great architecture and commissioned a number of the era’s most renowned artists and craftsmen to work on The Stock Exchange Tower. You will find that the building is filled with original art deco furnishings and beautiful art, such as the unique fresco, “Allegory of California” created by Mexican artist Diego Rivera in 1931, located in the grand stairwell.

 

Hosted beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be offered.
