WHERE IS MINNESOTA STREET PROJECT?
The Project inhabits three warehouses in Dogpatch. The galleries at 1275 Minnesota St. and 1150 25th St. are free and open to the public during regular business hours. The Artist Studio Program at 1240 Minnesota St. is not open to the public.
How long should I plan to visit?
We recommend setting aside at least two hours to visit 1275 Minnesota St. and an additional hour for the galleries at 1150 25th St.
Do all of the galleries maintain the same hours?
No. Each gallery has individual hours, posted here.
aRE THE TEN CHARTER GALLERIES THE ONLY EXHIBITORS AT 1275?
No. In addition to our eleven permanent galleries, 1275 Minnesota St. offers spaces to rent on a short-term basis. We welcome proposals from outside arts organizations, galleries and curators.
What else will I find at the Project?
Inside 1275, visitors will also find Alta, a restaurant by Daniel Patterson. Additionally, the building's Atrium offers bleacher seating and free wi-fi, welcome to public use.
WHAT ELSE WILL I FIND IN DOGPATCH?
Our Visit page lists the wonderful art spaces, businesses and restaurants you can find in our neighborhood and the surrounding area.
Is the space available for private party rentals?
Yes. For more information on our event space, please visit here.
IS THIS IS A NONPROFIT ENDEAVOR?
No. If operating as a non-profit provided the best opportunity to serve the local arts in San Francisco, Minnesota Street Project would operate as such. But we believe a new approach is needed.
WHY DID THE PROJECT PARTNER WITH ADOBE?
Adobe understands that the arts matter to technology – so not only will they be a sponsor of the Artist Studios Program, they are a resident artist themselves, with an actual on-site studio at 1240 Minnesota Street. Their teams envision the space as a hub for cross-pollinating ideas with our artist community, ranging from digital projects to educational experiences to new large scale experiments in creative tech, VR/AR, machine learning and 3D printing.
How does the Project fund its operations?
Our unique model includes a state-of-the art Art Services and Storage business. 100% of profits are used to support the artists, galleries, and institutions in the Minnesota Street Project. Please visit here for more information.
Do I have to be a collector to visit?
Absolutely not. While we are committed to helping our gallerists and artists sustain business through the sale of artwork, we are equally dedicated to educating the public through open, accessible engagement with exhibitions and programming.
