Hunters Point Shipyard

150 Local Artists Open Their Doors This Weekend at Hunters Point Shipyard Studios

If you love scoping out or collecting from the city's vibrant art scene but want to break out of the same old Tenderloin-Downtown-Mission circuit, take an excursion out to the Hunters Point Shipyard Studios this weekend, where more than 150 talented fine artists will throw open their doors to show the city just what they've been getting up to out there.

Spring Open Studio at Hunters Point

Hunters Point Shipyard artists host their annual Spring Open Studio this weekend (Sat & Sun, 11-6) and if you've never been out there it's definitely worth the trip. Seven buildings of the former Navy base house a huge artist colony, with over 250 artists on site year-round. Open Studio will showcase the work of 125 of the artists, allowing visitors to roam around the base, check out artist studios, and buy awesome things to hang in your house. The work includes fine art as well as craft like quilts and jewelry. Nearby Islais Creek Studios, the home of sculptors who used to show at Building 101, will also be open. It's a really awesome opportunity to check out local artists and get inside the old Navy base.
