These weeks are special opportunities for young people and adults from varied artistic and cultural disciplines to come together to share ideas and create works for public viewing in the Presidio at ArtSeed’s annual exhibition at The Galleries in Tides Converge Thurs Sept 5 – Sat Oct 5. An hour, a whole day, or a week spent with artists of all ages and expertise with a common goal can change hearts and minds forever!
