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.
* Amid closures caused by COVID-19, we are adapting AIN to still connect artists with art appreciators while maintaining safe social practices.
Introducing V-AIN: Virtual Art-In-Neigborhoods, a hybrid of real-life and digital experiences recognizing ArtSpan Artists. *
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- or 6-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 provide the budget to cover our administrative fees and pay the artists for exhibiting their work and promote the exhibitions to your clientele.
