About Hunters Point Shipyard Artists

Building 101 by John Arbuckle

The Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA) are the largest artist community in the United States, almost 300 artists in working studios. Read a brief history of the Shipyard.

We are located in the former U.S. Naval Shipyard in the Bayview Hunters Point community of San Francisco, and in the nearby Islais Creek Studios. We are open to the public  three weekends a year: Spring Open Studios, Fall Open Studios, and our Holiday Party & Art Show in December.

We also have our Virtual Artist Stores and Gallery, open during major events and for special shows.

Our website provides information about upcoming Open Studios and other events. It also gives you year-round access to the artists who make up the community.

The Shipyard Trust for the Arts (STAR), the Shipyard artists' nonprofit organization, advocates on behalf of the artists and maintains this website at no cost to the artists.
