--VISUAL ART--

"Born in the Bay" is an ongoing visual exhibition series. Each season, native Bay Area artists collaborate with top musicians, performers and chefs to create a unique community art event in the Mission District. The exhibition invites viewers in a popular but also neighborhood-friendly and socio-politically aware community space to view art created by SF Bay Area natives of diverse heritage and experience. Now more than ever ARTE Y TAPAS strives to create venue space for working Bay Area artists, with acute awareness and in defiance of an era of rapid music venue and art gallery closures. "Born in the Bay" celebrates a thriving SF Bay Area arts community and shines the spotlight on visual artists each with unique vision and techniques for observation and expression.
