Root Division is an arts and arts education non-profit located in the
Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division acts as an ecosystem for
artists in that we provide subsidized studio space to working artists in
exchange for their service in the organization. While creating opportunities
for individuals to develop both creatively & professionally, Root Division
promotes creative expression and builds community through having these
artists teach art in after school programs, lead adult education classes,
and produce special events that showcase local emerging artists. It is in
these connections between artistic exploration and public engagement that we
spark the powerful synergy between personal inspiration and social change.
Root Division is supported in part by grants from the San Francisco
Foundation and from the Walter & Elise Haas Sr Fund. The Second Saturday
Exhibition Series is sponsored by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation and the
Zellerbach Family Foundation.
