Art of Gold

The arts sector is one of our city's major life forces -- not only do the arts feed the city's soul, but also its pockets -- four times as many jobs and three times as much city revenue than other similarly-sized cities, in fact. This is why nearly 70 arts and culture organizations have come together to host the third annual San Francisco Arts Town Hall. The forum features candidates for the S.F. Board of Supervisors and serves as an opportunity for both the arts community and the general public to collectively shape the arts' role in future political agendas. In the past, the event has successfully served as a space for the arts sector to bring the breadth of its impact on culture, education, and the economy to light -- around $509 million in household income and 1.7 billion in local tourist revenue annually, both hearty chunks of change. Further proof through the support of the general public is greatly appreciated. This Town Hall is hosted by groundbreaking journalist Belva Davis, and is followed by a reception -- a great opportunity to engage in more intimate conversations with local artists, community members, and politicians like David Chiu, John Avalos, and Thea Selby.
