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.

About Main Gallery Exhibitions and Programs
SOMArts is a critical resource for contemporary arts production in San Francisco.  The organization produces three of its own curated exhibitions annually, along with numerous collaborative programs, and provides space for four guest-curated exhibitions annually through the Commons Curatorial Residency Program, which includes a stipend for selected curators and/or artist groups in addition to outreach and production support. The vaulted, 2-story gallery is 3,100 sq feet, a majestic space and the largest open gallery space in the city.

Through its Affordable Space Program, SOMArts annually hosts group exhibitions for ArtSpan Open Studios (October), the National Queer Arts Festival (June) and the United States of Asian America Festival (May).

The SOMArts Main Gallery exhibits the work of over 1,000 Bay Area artists each year, providing them with dynamic opportunities to take risks, find new collaborators, reach a wider audience, and achieve their vision. SOMArts’ Curator & Gallery Director Justin Hoover annually curates 2–3 exhibitions and supports curatorial residencies.
