ABOUT ROOT DIVISION:

 

Root Division is an arts & arts education non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.

 

Root Division is supported in part by grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts / ArtWorks, Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Grants for the Arts: San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund and Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund, San Francisco Arts Commission / Cultural Equity Grants, Zellerbach Family Foundation, W A Gerbode Foundation, Art4Moore, Fleishhacker Foundation, and Bill Graham Memorial Fund.
