Hayes Valley Art Works

A Community Creation Space

Hayes Valley Art Works is a place to come together to discuss, learn, teach, share and express artistic vision for the betterment of the neighborhood.

Our dynamic community of artists have come together to create and display original pieces, curate exhibits, performances, community events and unique gathering spaces on a vacant lot with a long history.

We are currently open to the public by four days a week, 12-5pm (Friday-Monday). Please respect our Zero Waste Policy by planning to carry out anything you bring to the site, including all food and beverage containers. Additional community guidelines can be found here.

Without our supporters, our work simply would not be possible. Please consider donating to our project.
