“Landscapes: Real and Imagined” an Art-In-Neighborhoods Exhibition presented at Mission Bowling Club curated by ArtSpan. 


 

We are seeking artists who explore the diversity of landscapes, welcoming a spectrum of interpretations from traditional landscapes to contemporary, abstract renditions, or even a fusion of both. We want to showcase work that captures landscapes deep and personal to you, whether real or imagined. We encourage artists in a variety of artistic mediums to apply, including paintings, drawings, photography, digital art, mixed media, and video art. Please note: this opportunity is exclusively available to ArtSpan Artist Members. 


 

Mission Bowling Club was founded in 2012 to combine the fun of family bowling with the ambiance and technique-driven approach one expects from San Francisco’s bars & restaurants. The spacious and airy warehouse that houses MBC provides a bright, family-friendly destination for a weekend afternoon excursion and, after dark, MBC is known as a great date night as well as a perfect place to blow off steam with friends. With a full restaurant and bar serving craft cocktails and elevated comfort food, Mission Bowling Club is an ideal location for company outings, holiday parties, birthdays, anniversaries, and even weddings. MBC is a woman and black-owned business with strong representation by women, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ individuals in its staff and leadership roles.

Unleash your creativity and present your work at San Francisco’s premier bowling club!

About the Art-in-Neighborhoods Program: The Art-In-Neighborhoods program strives to create visibility and accessibility for local arts in San Francisco by connecting communities with local artists and activating vacant spaces with vibrant, locally-made artwork. We partner with local businesses and building owners to bring pop-up art exhibitions and art events to dormant storefronts, empty spaces for lease, and businesses seeking artwork for their walls. Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to display, promote, and sell their artwork in these diverse venues. The Art-in-Neighborhoods program allows otherwise unused properties/spaces to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
