DESCRIPTION: In September of 2018, ArtSpan is launching 3 artist studios on the commercial corridor at Mission Street & Geneva Avenue as part of our partnership with Youth Art Exchange (YAX) that has created a pop-up art space on this commercial corridor. The Studio Residency program offers below market-rate studio spaces for a minimum six-month residency program at the former site of Chuck's Market at 5137 Mission Street.


  • Participation with SF Open Studios on October 27 & 28.

  • One workshop for YAX program participants as part of the Youth Open Studios Program, fall 2018. 


SITE VISIT: ArtSpan will host a viewing of the studios on Wednesday, August 29, 4pm-6pm. If you plan to attend, please email [email protected]

The Journal Building, 1540 Market Street

**Studios are occupied through the closure of the building. This could be as early as December 2018.**

Studio space is offered to select artists with a project-based need for working space, those who have recently been displaced from their San Francisco studios, and artists who have never had a studio (outside of home or school). Journal Building resident artists are expected to contribute as cooperative members of the residency, to attend monthly meetings, and to complete volunteer hours for ArtSpan.

No current availability. 

More Studios Residency opportunities coming soon! 

Artists must be current ArtSpan Members to be eligible for any of ArtSpan's Calls for Entry.
