SOMArts The Commons Curatorial Residency
The mission of SOMArts is to promote and nurture art on the community level, and to foster an appreciation of and respect for all cultures. Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
Financial support provided by The Commons Curatorial Residency enables artists and curators to continue their professional development, form new collaborative partnerships, and engage community residents through programming that serves the mission of SOMArts: to promote and nurture art on the community level and foster an appreciation of and respect for all cultures.
Four residencies are awarded each season and are designed to support emerging and mid‐career artists, as well as artists exploring new and challenging ideas.
