Celebrate San Francisco is a gallery-based exhibit to be launched at the Mission Cultural Center. It is a pilot project focused on two simple questions: How are San Franciscans celebrating the human experience given present circumstances? And, what innovations/best practices are being developed in local communities and industries that can be replicated on a broader scale? By meaningfully engaging the dynamic talent present in San Francisco, we hope that gallery visitors will have greater reason to celebrate the life and culture of the City.
