Art-in-Neighborhoods program 

Program MISSion & Goals:

ArtSpan’s Art-in-Neighborhoods program serves the city of San Francisco by connecting communities with local artists while activating spaces with vibrant, locally-made artwork. ArtSpan partners with local businesses and building owners to bring art studios, art exhibitions, and art events to businesses, dormant storefronts, and empty spaces. Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to create, display, promote, and sell their artwork in these diverse venues. All aspects of the program allow otherwise unused walls, spaces, or properties to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts.

 

ART-IN-NEIGHBORHOODS Exhibitions

The Art-In-Neighborhoods program strives to create visibility and accessibility for local arts in San Francisco. ArtSpan provides the public with free, high quality arts exposure. Simultaneously, local ArtSpan artists are given the opportunity to promote and sell their artwork. Each of the Art-in-Neighborhoods exhibitions and community events will provide clear, consistent information about ArtSpan programing to educate the public about ArtSpan’s goals and how to become a supporter – by attending our events and buying artwork from local artists!

Information for Community Partners

Are you interested in featuring local artwork at your business or property, but don’t have the time to coordinate exhibitions and manage art sales? Let ArtSpan take care of it!
We work with local artists who produce quality artwork to coordinate rotating 3-month exhibitions. ArtSpan takes care of the planning, art-installation, labeling, signage, and sales. All you need to do is work with ArtSpan staff for scheduling, and help to promote the exhibitions to your clientele. 
 
 

Studio Residency Program

ArtSpan offers below market-rate studio rentals to artists in San Francisco as part of a cooperative residency program. Artists must be new or existing ArtSpan Artist Members ($30 annual) to be eligible to apply. Click here for membership information. 

Studio space is offered to artists who have recently been displaced from their San Francisco studios, those who have never had a studio (outside of home or school), and those with a project-based need for work space. The selected artists are expected to contribute as cooperative and collaborative members of the studio community, to volunteer with ArtSpan, and to participate with SF Open Studios in the fall. See below for each studio residency location and application details. 

Please contact asnopek@artspan.org with questions.
