In less than a decade, the nonprofit Artist Foundation of San Antonio has awarded $512,000 to 92 artists working in varied disciplines, including performing, visual, media and literary arts. Although supported in part by the San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development, the Tobin Endowment and others, the AF hosts fanciful fundraising fêtes such as Contemporary Art Month’s Moveable Art Party and the new holiday-themed Elf Ball. Set to turn Brick at Blue Star into a “fantastical winter wonderland, complete with guests dressed as elves,” the inaugural event promises a silent art auction, giftable wares available for purchase from local artists Leigh Anne Lester, Jake Zollie Harper and Justin Parr, music by Los #3 Dinners and DJ Agosto Cuellar, an aerial performance by Artist Foundation grant winner Julia Langenberg (pictured), bites from Hot Joy, Starfish, Folc, Stella and Bakery Lorraine and cocktails via Park Social. $125, 7-11pm Thu, Brick, 108 Blue Star, artistfound.org. —Bryan Rindfuss
