Submit your artwork to (415) Public Gallery, a crowdsourced art show

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - March 15 @ 11:59 pm

Submit one piece of work to (415) Public Gallery, this year hosted online, which aims to break down barriers to accessing the arts.

(415) Public Gallery: Your work on our virtual walls, a crowdsourced art show

Youth Art Exchange announces the 3rd annual (415) Public Gallery, an art show that places the public as both exhibitors and audience members. Exhibiting (hopefully!) 415 pieces, the curation of the art show will be crowdsourced from those living/working/loving in San Francisco. No, we really mean EVERYONE, whether they consider themselves an artist or not, we want everybody’s creativity in our virtual gallery. All ages/backgrounds welcome.

By extending an open invitation to all – those who may or may not consider themselves artists – (415) Public Gallery aims to break down barriers to accessing the arts and questioning what is it to exhibit in a gallery space. Blurring lines between audience and exhibitor, (415) Public Gallery will extend further than “the traditional gallery”, as an exhibition by and for the public.

Work will be on display online beginning on April 6th, 2021. Join us for virtual exhibition opening on Thursday, April 15, from 6-7pm. There will also be a series of virtual artmaking workshops, more info to come soon!


Submission Dates: Now-March 15th, 2021
