Bursting with Life: The 2020 SFUSD Arts Festival
Here at the NLS blog we love art. If you’ve read any of our posts over the past few years, then you know just how much time we’ve devoted to art festivals (and this includes film festivals, art fairs, craft art pop-ups, theatrical events, and other such artistic revels). Well, today we’re going to be sticking to that winning formula by providing you with yet another marvelous art event to place on your calendar.
Do you plan on being in the Bay Area at the end of March? More specifically, do you plan on being near the Civic Center anytime between March 21st and March 29th? If so, then we’ve got the perfect event for you! The San Francisco Unified School District is pulling out all the stops this year and preparing a real triumph at the SFUSD Arts Festival!
Jointly hosted by the Asian Art Museum, the SFUSD Arts Festival will place its primary focus on the creativity of the youth within the Bay Area. As anyone who has spent any amount of time around children will tell you, this creativity comes in many forms. Therefore, it will surprise no one to learn that the SFUSD Arts Festival will feature works in a wide variety of styles, such as:
- Performance Art
- Media Arts
Prepare to be surprised, delighted, inspired, and thrilled by the creativity of the youngest generation at this event which is now celebrating its 34th straight year!
That’s right – this is far from the SFUSD’s first Art Festival rodeo. Since its inception in the mid 80’s, the event has attracted families from throughout the Bay Area to wander through numerous galleries all dedicated to the stunning talent and surprising creativity to be found within children. Individuals, groups, families, and classes will attend this year in order to look at the work created by students from pre-K up until 12th grade, all of whom have passed through the vital Arts Education Master Plan spearheaded by the SFUSD.
This year’s 2020 SFUSD Arts Festival will take place from March 21st until the 29th, with the 23rd being open only to school groups. Admission is free and includes full access to the entire rest of the museum.
