The Sweat Shop is a community of diverse artists committed to maintaining affordable studio space for active artists in the heart of San Francisco. We are looking for independent, creative artists in a variety of media to share our 24-hour access studios in a commercial building on Market Street. Please note that only a couple of the units have windows. All the other units have windows into the hallway and thus get some passive sunlight. Also, bathrooms, and shower are down the hall, and there is a communal kitchen and hang-out space. There are elevators and security entrances on both ends of the building. Generally we request quiet hours Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 pm to 8:00 am, and hold short weekly meetings to discuss community issues.
Please tell us about yourself, your artwork, your lifestyle, and why you want a studio here.
