The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery and the San Francisco Study Center are proud to present As We Live It, a juried exhibition at historic San Francisco City Hall featuring works created by participants of San Francisco’s Community Behavioral Health Services. The selected artists are among thousands of San Francisco residents who access the City’s multiple programs of assistance for anything from temporary counseling to places to live, and who receive substance abuse and mental health treatment.
As We Live It celebrates the vast and deep talents of artists who use their visual art practice as one form of articulating their identities in a way that words cannot.
