On Market Street (between 5th & 7th) and 6th Street (between Market & Howard)
in San Francisco

Now in its third year, Urban Solutions' 2 Blocks of Art is a true San Francisco experience. The art walk showcases over 100 local artists in 25 locations in a neighborhood rich with culture and well known for its cutting edge arts community. The heart of the art walk is 6th & Market.

In 2012, we are proud to expand to present 2 months of 2 Blocks of Art. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs and theaters along Sixth Street will offer discounted food, drinks and admission prices. In addition to encompassing a larger area this year, the San Francisco Arts Commission enhances this annual art walk with street activities including temporary public art and performances by local artists.

Both 2 Blocks of Art 2012 events will occur during the 24 Days of Central Market Arts Festival.

Artists interested in participating are encouraged to contact or call (415) 553-4433 x115.

2 Blocks of Art 2012 is sponsored in part by grants from Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund and the Zellerbach Family Foundation, in addition to contributions from MJM Management, Shorenstein, Forest City, Fremont Bank, Archstone, and Barbary Coast Consulting. Contact us for details about sponsorship, or call (415) 553-4433 x106.
