Our 15th annual live drawing event & fundraiser! As spectators spy on the creative process, sketches morph into full-fledged artworks – immediately available for just $75 a piece. All proceeds directly support Southern Exposure's programs.
Our intensive summer program focuses on arts-based community development by pairing youth ages 14-21 with local teaching artists. Now accepting applications for this summer's program, which starts July 13!
directions given – directions taken invites 24 people to design instructions or parameters for the creation of new artworks. Each participant writes a prompt and receives a prompt, to be interpreted and enacted at one of six evening performances.
The number one way Southern Exposure realizes our mission of supporting artists is with your financial contributions. If you participate in our programs and rely on us to be the steadfast presence for artists in the Bay Area community, please give.
