Project Description

Connecting Art and Community

Shipyard Trust for the Arts (STAR) is the nonprofit organization of the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists, a studio community of more than 300 working artists and musicians in the historic Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco. We are the largest artist community in the U.S. STAR was formed to address threatened displacement of the artists from their affordable work studios at the Shipyard.
STAR advocates for keeping studio rents affordable and assures that no artists are displaced under ever-changing conditions, supports artists by promoting their art during Open Studios and other art shows and connecting them with other opportunities to sell their work.
STAR also advocates for increasing access to Shipyard art studios for historically marginalized
artists, and increased access in general to the arts for the Bayview Hunters Point community.
