HAYES VALLEY ART WORKS: A COMMUNITY CREATION SPACE Hayes Valley Art Works is a place to come together to discuss, learn, teach, share and express artistic vision for the betterment of the neighborhood. Our gallery is in the container at Oak Street and Octavia Blvd and gardens in the block between Oak and Page. Our dynamic community of artists, neighbors, and local businesses have come together to create and display original pieces, curate exhibits, share public performances, community events and unique gathering spaces on a vacant lot. The lots (Site R & S) are slated for affordable housing in approximately 2 years; in the meantime, through a partnership with Hayes Valley Art Works, Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, Friends of the Urban Forest, the City and County of San Francisco, and other supporters, this space has been made available for programming that will enhance the neighborhood. We are currently open to the public four days a week: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, from 11am to 4pm
