San Francisco Art Studio Foundation
We are the San Francisco Art Studio Foundation (SFASF) - a 501(c)3 non-profit private foundation which provides financial and professional support to energize the careers of artists in San Francisco. SFASF also is engaged on an ongoing basis in creating comprehensive dialogue about the full range of challenges faced by artists living and working in San Francisco, and developing programmatic solutions that provide resources which activate creativity and other components of the visual arts ecosystem.
We seek to answer our Guiding Questions:
What can be done to retain San Francisco's artistic talent?
What kind of support and community must we have to attract the most creative and innovative artists from around the world to San Francisco?
How can we transform San Francisco into the premiere city for the fine and contemporary arts?
SFASF has established a solid reputation in the San Francisco arts community by awarding financial stipends to select artists from Bay Area art programs. Current organizational goals for the upcoming year include the continued administration and expansion of SFASF's Emerging Artist Award, as well as the development of a discussion-based salon series, which will serve as a platform for thought leaders and experts of all disciplines to discuss and design solutions to the challenges of surviving as an artist in San Francisco.
