On August 26, the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) will close the final exhibition at their iconic 155 Grove Street location.
The public is invited to the official closing ceremonies on August 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, which will feature work by the acclaimed graphic designer Martin Venezky and a procession led by performance artist Cliff Hengst.
The site has been hosting SFAC window installations for nearly 47 years, and it has housed the work of more than 1500 artists since its opening in 1970. Since 1996, exhibitions have been viewable from the sidewalk, giving visitors a unique mix between street art and window shopping.
However, the size of the Grove Street site limits the art that can be displayed in its window space, so SFAC has decided to move its visual art exhibitions to a larger space in its main gallery.
