As Root Division prepares to open our new 13,000 square foot facility at 1131 Mission St. to the public in September–this month, we are presenting our August 2nd Saturday exhibition offsite in the heart of our old Mission District neighborhood.
Mission Street is a main artery through a variety of the fastest evolving neighborhoods in San Francisco. In 14 Rapid: Transit and Transition, fourteen artists consider the #14 Bus line, and the evolution of Mission Street in a variety of media including performance, video, painting, sculpture and photography. The #14 Muni bus line runs from Daly City to SoMA and carries passengers representing the rich cultural diversity that San Francisco’s Crocker Amazon, Excelsior, Mission District and SoMA residents represent.
The exhibition will be presented at 2293 Mission Street, a restaurant space made available for our use. We are thrilled to partner with Citizen Fox, the newest restaurant project by longtime Root Division supporter Deborah Blum, to offer an evening of art, and innovative plant based food.
While Root Division will no longer be located, “in The Mission,” our new building will be “on Mission.” Please join us in this time of organizational and city wide evolution, as we celebrate our old neighborhood, and look just down the street–only a few bus stops away–to our future home.
