The collective of 73 artists at Mission and 17th, known as Studio 17, hosts Open Studios this weekend. Get there for potentially great prices and meet cool local artitsts—it may be your last chance: The artists here are facing displacement thanks to the building's owner who, like everyone apparently, is seeking tech rental dollars. // Saturday and Sunday, noon to 6pm (Mission), studio17artists.com
