This annual community gathering will feature a stunning collection of artwork from local and regional artists, galleries, and collectors.
We teamed up with Lonely Whale to transition away from single-use plastic water bottles before the end of 2018. This ocean-friendly move, driven by Midway art director, Kelsey Issel, will save over 25,000 plastic bottles on New Years Eve and over 300,000 in 2019.
The Midway is the first independent cultural hub to support the city of San Francisco’s commitment to move its properties away from single use plastic bottles.
BE ON THE BEAT:
BOUND by Inyoung
Feeling at times bound by marriage & cultural expectations, Inyoung Seoung uses rope & thread in an attempt to impose harmony on the intricacies upon which significant relationships are built. BOUND is a reflection on the human desire to form & nurture family, friendship, & community while bringing beauty to how inextricably woven our lives are to one another.
technology & creativity
Alongside international artists who are pushing the boundaries of their mediums, The Midway is exploring how technologies such as AI, AR and robotics are changing human evolution, especially in how it relates to creativity.
