Eight bridges connect the San Francisco Bay, so it is an apt name for a gallery platform that brings the Bay Area art world together.

Our mission is to maintain a vibrant gallery scene, despite restrictions on travel, celebrations and other larger gatherings. We want to support our artists by informing and entertaining curators, collectors and critics with potent online exhibitions of their work.

On the first Thursday of every month, we will launch 8 shows of artists relevant to the Bay Area. They may be working in this place, long considered an epicenter of change, or deeply engaged in the conversations the Bay Area holds dear, whether it’s related to technology, the environment, social justice or sexual identity, to name a few. In addition, each month will highlight the crucial work of a Bay Area non-profit arts organization as its beneficiary, with an initial donation led by Phillips.

Fleishhacker Foundation – Small Arts Grants
In response to the impact of the COVID-19 closures on the local arts community, the Small Arts Grants program is accepting applications for general operating support during the fall 2021 review cycle from 501(c)(3) nonprofit and fiscally sponsored organizations. In addition, post-production support for film projects directed by Bay Area filmmakers with budgets under $750,000 will be considered in this program, if applying with an eligible fiscal sponsor or nonprofit production company. All other project-specific support, however, remains suspended for this cycle.

The Foundation seeks to fund a broad range of arts groups that produce and present innovative new work by Bay Area artists. It strives to make grants that support a diverse array of artistic disciplines, aesthetic sensibilities, and forms of cultural expression. We prioritize grant requests that best support working artists and place particular emphasis on funding groups that represent and engage marginalized artists and communities.
