Join 14 galleries in the Yerba Buena Neighborhood as they join together to publicly celebrate the area's diverse artistic offerings. Visitors are invited to explore the art galleries located between Market and Harrison, 2nd and 5th Streets, interact with other art lovers, engage with the artistic offerings, and enjoy refreshments provided by neighborhood eateries.
This is the fourth Yerba Buena Gallery Walk, sponsored by the Yerba Buena Alliance and Yerba Buena Community Benefit District.
