Shipyard Open Studios (October 23-24)
San Francisco’s historic Hunters Point Naval Shipyard is the unique home of the country’s largest artist community. For more than 30 years, generations of art makers have painted, welded, and worked within the impressive industrial buildings of the old Shipyard, where colossal, decommissioned cranes rise dramatically along the shore of the San Francisco Bay.
Now, the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists offer the public an opportunity to explore this singular creative community in one fell swoop this fall during its Shipyard Open Studios, connecting with over one hundred art makers in their spaces and supporting them directly with purchases of their work.
Open Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24 from 11am-6pm, this is a rare chance for visitors to visit the Shipyard, which is only open to the public twice a year for artist events. The public is invited to drop in anytime over the weekend free of charge to enjoy this lively gathering of artists in their studios, located within six adjacent Shipyard buildings. Local food vendors and musical entertainment are planned as well. Parking is plentiful.
