What is Mission Artists United?
Mission Artists United is a bunch of Mission Artists who got together in 2009 to create a forum where we could cross promote each other, brag about our neighborhood, and find opportunities to further our artistic work together.
The Mission has the highest concentration of working artist in the Bay area and we just flat out love our neighborhood and all it has to offer. We knew if could demonstrate the diversity and richness of our art district to the city and to the world, that would be good for all our aspirations. Imagine how thrilled we were to grow from that group of 10 artists to over 500 active users on this site in less than 2 years!
If you are an artist working in the Mission, then you are already part of MISSION ARTISTS UNITED!
