Southern Exposure is one of San Francisco's oldest and most innovative non-profit contemporary arts and education organizations. Since 1974 we have provided a diverse program of visual arts exhibitions, education programs, public art projects, grants to artists, publications and events, and has become a vital resource for artists to exhibit, teach and interact with the broader community and for at-risk youth to experience making and exhibiting art.
