    About the Village Artist-in-Residence Program
    The Village Artist-in-Residence at the Village Artist Corner is a program of the Asian Art Museum. It aims to support creative development directly aligned with growing and sustaining consistent community engagement among those who frequent the Civic Center Commons. The purpose of this program is to create a public platform via the Village Artists’ work that invites the community to explore expression and creativity while deepening connection and compassion. Stop by the first Sunday and second Wednesday of every month a to engage in creative compassion through art-making, music, dance and more!

    Major activations will take place on Target First Free Sundays, when the museum offers free general admission courtesy of Target.

    About the Village Artist Corner
    The Village Artist Corner features rotating murals and monthly programs at the dragon sculpture on the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets adjacent to the Asian Art Museum. The program was developed as part of Groundplay, a city collaboration co-led by the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation, San Francisco Planning and the San Francisco Arts Commission. 

    Designed by San Francisco public high school students in the architecture program at Youth Art Exchange, the sculpture is inspired by mythological creatures found in the art and literature of many different cultures and time periods. Our dragon is decorated with a myriad of patterns found on artwork in the Asian Art Museum’s collection. Through 2021, the intended life of the project, the sculpture and area around it will be programmed with monthly activities and new mural openings. Monthly activities take place on the first Sunday and second Wednesday of each month.

Sponsors

The Village Artist Corner is funded through the generosity of The Family of Tania Vonelleese Seymour. Founding program support was made possible by Housing-Related Parks Program from the State of California, facilitated by San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department; The Hearst Foundations; California Arts Council; San Francisco Grants for the Arts; and The NFL Foundation and 50 Fund, the legacy fund of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee.
