Discover three cultural gems in the Mission District: seminal artist David Ireland’s home, Stable and the new Southern Exposure. Each space speaks to the historical roots of the neighborhood while furthering the emerging cultural movement of the district. The tour starts with a look at the exterior of David Ireland’s personal residence, soon to be renovated; then passes the recently opened Stable building, a historic carriage house turned coffee shop and food collective; and ends with an in-depth look at the brand new Southern Exposure. Southern Exposure’s new space will be an important and vital element of the cultural life of San Francisco. The building provides flexible spaces that support a community of visual artists, cultural producers and the public.
Tour led by Quinn Morgan, Mark Jensen, AIA, Courtney Fink and Richard Johnson.
