Kearny Street Workshop space180
180 Capp St. @17th St.,
Join the nation's oldest multidisciplinary API arts nonprofit in celebrating the opening night of its 8th annual APAture festival, and wander through the halls of 180 Capp to explore drawings, paintings, textiles, and installations from over 40 visual artists in the Bay Area API community, including featured visual artist Kathy Aoki, whose cheeky, pop-inspired pieces include carvings of little girls turned pirate automatons.
Kearny Street Workshop's APATURE FESTIVAL is an annual multidisciplinary arts event presenting the work of emerging Asian Pacific American (APA) artists living and/or working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now in its eighth year, APAture includes a visual arts show, film screenings, workshops, literary readings, performances in spoken word, music, dance, theater, and other performance genres, and an area for zinesters and comic artists to display and sell their work. Experience the sights, sounds, and spirit of over 100 Asian Pacific American artists at eight Mission District venues.
