The San Francisco Shipyard and artists go hand-in-hand. Since 1983, the artist community within our neighborhood has been an integral part of its foundation and culture. It all began when sculptor Jacques Terzian set up a studio in an old warehouse in the Hunters Point Shipyard. Since then, the artist community has become the nation’s largest artist colony, known as the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA). Soon, work will begin on a new facility that will house working studios for more than 300 artists.
As our neighborhood continues grow, you’ll begin to notice art installations of all kinds in the parks and along the streets. Let us introduce you to some of the artists who have been working on these incredible installations that will make up our public art collection.
