San Francisco might not be the type of city where you can lounge by the pool during the warm months, but it also isn't the type of city to ignore its gorgeous views of the water. We've all walked the Golden Gate Bridge, we've all sat at Pier 39 and looked out at Alcatraz. But this summer, Southern Exposure is interested in the lesser-known and grittier waterways. The Potrero-based gallery has put together a selection of local and international artists for their group project, Off Shore, a series of events that celebrate the waters of the Bay Area. The five artists each have a chance to show how they think water can be used as a medium equal to land. During the next six weeks, you can expect to see some unexpected events and installations throughout town, such as a peep show at the Bay View Boat Club, a celebration for the strange neighborhood that is Mission Creek, and a series of walks through the city's watersheds. Some events require you to pre-register online and space can be as limited as land in San Francisco. You've been warned.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: May 28. Continues through July 3, 2014
