A homegrown, radical, feminist art space for San Francisco!

Special public workshops Nov. 21-22

Seventeen artists, all Bay Area­-raised womyn, present an eclectic body of artwork and public workshops that explore feminist and anti­-racist themes within the context of the Bay Area’s current social upheaval. During this profound moment in which local communities are being uprooted and silenced, “Hidden in Plain Sight” is a collective answer to cultural erasure. The banding together of diverse womyn artists is a testament to the power of unity as a radical act in the face of displacement.

Special public workshops Nov. 21-22

Curated by Nina Reyes Rosenberg, Ariana Faye Allensworth, AnnieRose Fink
