In 2011, $4,500 was presented to Independent Arts and Media for local Art Market. SF Arts Market brings local arts to UN Plaza, Civic Center and Central Market, supporting a healthy local arts economy and connecting it to the thriving local-food economy that has emerged around San Francisco’s most visible and accessible farmer’s market. This type of activity helps to activate the plaza with positive programming.
Since 1988, San Francisco Beautiful has been helping neighbors realize their dreams for a more beautiful city with small grants. Through our grant program we were able to revitalize community assets like gardens, create innovative new opportunities for interaction, and help communities build their capacity to raise more funds. We are proud of our history of supporting community-based projects that create, enhance, and protect the unique beauty and livability of our City.
