Hunter’s Point Shipyard Artists Private Studio Tour and Reception

Join ArtPoint for an exclusive tour of the workspace occupied by Hunter's Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA), an artist community located in San Francisco's historic naval shipyard of the same name. During this private event, guests enjoy a tour of the artists' studios, which are usually open to the public only four days a year.

The day begins with an introduction from Shipyard Trust for the Arts (STAR), the non-profit that supports the HPSA. Guests then enjoy a self-guided tour of the artists' studios, with exclusive one-on-one access to the artists and their artwork. Following the tour, guests convene in one of the studios for a private reception.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience the largest artists community in the country right in San Francisco's backyard.
