Arts in Storefronts next stop: The Mission

The third installment of the Arts in Storefronts pilot program will launch Friday in the Mission District with an evening celebration.

Vacated storefronts will transform from failed businesses into art exhibits. The work of San Francisco-based artists will be on display.

The project is a citywide effort that recently kicked off in the Mid-Market and Tenderloin neighborhoods and is set to expand Oct. 30 to the Bayview district.

All installations will remain on view through the end of January, according to the San Francisco Arts Commission.

The program “taps into our incredible creative community to help combat some of the effects of the economic recession on our neighborhood commercial districts,” Mayor Gavin Newsom said in a statement.

The Mission launch event will kick off at Triple Base Gallery at 3041 24th St. The community celebration will feature an unveiling ceremony lead by Mixcoatl Anahuac Danza Azteca and live jazz by The Association.

The evening will also include an art walk, which, in addition to the three storefront installations, will include Triple Base Gallery’s 24th Street Promenade, an ongoing project that places ten additional art projects in businesses located along the corridor, the Arts Commission said.
