Youth Art Exchange Submissions!


Youth Art Exchange announces our 2nd annual (415) Public Gallery, an art show that places the public as both exhibitors and audience members. Exhibiting (hopefully!) 415 pieces, the curation of the art show will be crowdsourced from those living/working/loving in San Francisco. No, we really mean EVERYONE, whether they consider themselves an artist or not, we want everybody’s creativity in our gallery. All ages/backgrounds welcome.


This art show will draw San Francisco together by placing pieces together from unexpected and delightful participants. Building the art show will gather creative community in the southeastern part of San Francisco in the Excelsior at [x]space arts hub by connecting neighbors and beyond as they show and view work.


The call for submissions will be open from March 2nd - March 27th with two drop-off locations. We will have three events for the show: 1) youth-led art-making workshops on Saturday April 4th from 2-4pm, 2) exhibition opening on Saturday April 4th from 4-7pm, and 3) a happy hour on Wednesday April 15th from 7-9pm. The exhibition will take place at [x]space arts hub, 5137 Mission Street, a project of Youth Art Exchange in partnership with Green Art Workshop and ARTSPAN.
