    About the Village Artist Corner
    As part of a city initiative to revive underutilized public spaces with art, performance and community activities, San Francisco has created several Living Innovation Zones (LIZ) under the Groundplay Program. We are honored to share a LIZ with the San Francisco Public Library: the Village Artist Corner outside the museum on Fulton and Larkin streets. The Village Artist Corner is a venue for art for social change, a platform that encourages creative compassion through experiences designed to bring people together through installations, performances and art-making. In addition to programs on the first Sundays and second Wednesdays of the month, the Village Artist Corner includes a 30-foot-long mural wall that presents a rotating display of site-specific artworks. 



Sponsors

The Village Artist Corner is funded through the generosity of The Family of Tania Vonelleese Seymour and San Francisco Grants for the Arts. Founding program support was made possible by Housing-Related Parks Program from the State of California, facilitated by San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department; The Hearst Foundations; California Arts Council; and The NFL Foundation and 50 Fund, the legacy fund of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee. Support for community engagement at the Asian Art Museum is provided by The Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
