This event supports Youth Art Exchange's [x]space arts hub. [x]space is an interactive art making and exhibition space accessible to youth and community members of all ages. The “x” in [x]space is related to exchange, experimentation, Excelsior, and x as a variable. Visit us at the heart of the Excelsior at 5137 Mission Street, at Mission & Geneva.

Transformed from a meat market (Chuck’s Market) that was shuttered for nearly a decade, this space is focused on creative exchange between artists and community. It is an active arts center by Youth Art Exchange with free classes and programming for San Francisco public high school students, workshops, a youth printshop, an art gallery, community meeting space, and venue rentals.
