SOMArts Cultural Center: Building the Building (opening reception)

July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Building the Building takes its inspiration from the internal nickname for SOMArts’ large physical space and honors and celebrates the work of artists and leaders that have made SOMArts what it is today, a crucial champion of culture and community.

For over four decades, SOMArts has occupied a unique foothold in the arts landscape of the Bay Area, as many artists and communities that would not have had an outlet for their work found space and support within the walls of “the building.” Countless artists, collectives, organizations, movements, and rebellions that have made the Bay Area arts community what it is today have at one point engaged with the services and space of SOMArts.

The free, all ages reception includes curatorial remarks and special performances by Rhodessa Jones and Jyun Jyun Show!

This exhibition is part of SOMArts Cultural Center’s 40th anniversary program. To learn more about Building the Building, please visit: https://www.somarts.org/events/buildingthebuilding/
