About San Francisco

Founded by Juan de Ayala in 1776 as the Presidio of San Francisco, this city in Northern California is one of the most popular tourist cities in the world. This may be due to its cool summers and warm winters, the gorgeous landscape, or the number of attractions. The beaches are extremely popular too.

Some of the major attractions in the city include the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and the Painted Ladies. There are also 27 art museums and galleries, which makes San Francisco the perfect spot for art lovers. So why not plan your art show space in San Francisco as well?

Interesting Fact: At 1,017 acres, Golden Gate Park is bigger than the 778-acre Central Park.

Art Show Options in San Francisco

While you are planning where your art show should be located, you can go ahead and start planning all the other details you need to cover. But you do not have to do it alone. San Francisco has hundreds of event companies to help you.

  • Flowers and Décor
    The décor is the first thing people notice when they walk into a place. Make sure it is stunning without being too flashy. You want something that complements the artwork rather than overpowering it.

  • Food and Drinks
    No matter whether you have 10 people or 1,000, you need to at least provide some kind of refreshments. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks are good enough but if you want a buffet or seated dinner, that can work too.

  • Transportation
    Arrive in style without having to deal with the traffic on your own. Hiring a car service or limousine to get you from point A to point B is a fantastic way to get around. And you will not even have to use a GPS if you let them drive you around.

  • Security
    Artwork is expensive so make sure you have some kind of security at your art show space in San Francisco. Depending on the size of the venue, the number of people, and budget, you can get one security guard or a whole security detail.

  • Equipment
    Make sure the art is expertly shown with pedestals, display cases, and easels as well as spectacular lighting and other equipment. You want each piece to stand out as the “best piece at the show.”

  • Everything is pretty
    From the golden sandy beaches to the fancy mansions, the city just looks good. You will need your camera for this place.

  • High prices
    From food to gas and everything in between, you will be paying more for it all in San Francisco. In fact, some things are double the price of what they cost in other cities.

Famous Locations in San Francisco

  • Museum of Modern Art
    This fantastic art museum boasts 33,000+ pieces from photos to sculpture and everything in between. It was the first museum devoted to 20th-century art on the west coast. Some of the popular items to look for include A Set of Six Self-Portraits by Andy Warhol, The Flower Carrier by Diego Rivera, and The Nest by Louise Bourgeois.

  • Grace Cathedral
    This is one stop that should be on any art lovers’ list. The cathedral was established in 1934 and lauds some of the most exquisite stained-glass designs in the world. The replica of the 1452 Gates of Paradise by Ghiberti and mosaics by De Rosen are legendary but don’t miss the Labyrinths both inside and out.
