Transformative Use: Military Base to Cultural Space

Saturday, June 17, 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Tour 10

The Presidio and Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture are both pioneers in the reuse of former military bases. Situated on some of the city’s most beautiful real estate with pristine views of the Golden Gate Bridge, each location has a remarkable and unique history. Learn about the public-private partnerships that created these landmarks, the organizations housed on acres of repurposed space (including LucasFilm’s San Francisco Campus and the San Francisco Film Society in the Presidio; the San Francisco Art Institute’s new building and SFMOMA Artists Gallery at Fort Mason), the site specific Andy Goldsworthy and For-Site Foundation art installations that draw millions of visitors, and how to sustain these cultural assets amid million-dollar views of San Francisco Bay. Bus Tour. Departs Hilton at 1:30pm. Duration approx. 3.5 hours.
