Mission Open Studios is a new collaboration among working artists studios in San Francisco's Mission District. The area bordered by Mission Street, Potrero Avenue, and 17th Street, originally an industrial section of the Mission, is evolving into a vibrant, growing Artist District. Anchored by Project Artaud, Developing Environments, and Art Explosion's 17th Street Studios, the area has seen the addition of 1890 Bryant, Workspace, Compound 21, Art Explosion Alabama St., Root Division and Blue Studios.
This spring, these studios will collaborate to host Mission Open Studios, opening their doors to the public for an amazing weekend of art viewing on Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13. All studios are located within blocks of each other, with more than 300 accomplished artists participating. Mission Open Studios will give thousands of visitors an opportunity to view and purchase beautiful, challenging and affordable art.
A preview night, hosted by all 9 studios, will take place Friday, May 11, from 7 pm to 11 pm. Each studio will host previews, so visitors can move from venue to venue for a first look at studios and a great night on the town.
