!NEW! Full Color Shipyard Art Guide to help you navigate through the studios in eight different Shipyard buildings.
This May, a record number of 170 artists will be opening their doors to the public. Come out and gain a new appreciation for the arts, meet artists personally, buy art at great prices, and come away energized and refreshed by your encounter with this unique and continually evolving artist community.
Nestled along a private stretch of the scenic San Francisco Bay, the dramatic historic setting of this Open Studio is a former naval shipyard. With over 250 studios spread out across 8 buildings, the reclaimed buildings are now ideal incubators for the artists who have called this place home for more than two decades. As plans for the Shipyard's redevelopment continue, the artists' colony is pleased to remain a prominent part of San Francisco's vision for the site.
Several Shipyard artists will hold preview parties on May 2, in addition to the main event in Gallery 101. A list of preview parties and their locations will be available in the Shipyard Art Guide.
A Family-Friendly event, Open Studios features inviting outdoors areas along the Bay and on-site food vendors, enabling visitors to spend all day perusing this unique arts destination.
