A multifaceted event and community space in San Francisco’s Mission District. Public Works consists of a performance/event space, bar, art gallery and artist work shop/community room.
During the day artists conceive and produce work that will come to light as the sun goes down and the electronic and indie music scenes bubble up to fill this new home for the SF Underground.
From DJ oriented Club Parties and live bands to independent film screenings,performance art and random creative Outbursts, Public Works is a Hangout, a Happening, an Adventure.
The art gallery provides a space where the work of local SF based artists can mingle with both the up and coming art star and the budding savant, encouraged to show by one of the Cities creatively oriented non profits.
With studio space at a premium here in San Francisco four artist residents will be afforded, at no cost, a daytime work shop that come evening transforms into a community room available free of charge to neighborhood groups and other benevolent organizations.
We encourage the growth of art and creativity in the Mission and San Francisco as a whole and are intent to provide a forum and a physical space for both.
As part of our commitment to the Neighborhood we will donate a portion of our proceeds to various local non profits in addition to assisting them with promotions and events. Root Division ( http://rootdivision.org/ ), a non profit which brings art classes to kids in schools that can’t afford programs is a current beneficiary.
We’re all about bringing the wide array of San Francisco’s underground scenes and styles together under one roof while promoting and linking with some of the bay areas most inspiring, creatively oriented non profits
