The Bay-View Hunters Point has been a community for artists since 1983, when the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA) transformed the former U.S. naval shipyard on Hunters Point and in the nearby Islais Creek into artist studios. The Hunters Point Shipyard is now home to more than 250 artists. Twice a year – in the spring and in the fall – over 100 artists open their studio doors to the public during Shipyard Open Studios. This is a rare opportunity to meet the artists, see where they create their work, and purchase art directly from the artist.
