Two City-supported Cultural Centers, South of Market Arts Center (SOMArts) and the African American Art and Culture Complex (AAACC) exemplify multi-use arts spaces that serve their respective communities through adult, family and afterschool programs while incubating new and exciting artwork, exhibitions and innovations. They are each adjacent to cultural districts – some on the brink of transformation and some that have forever changed communities. Learn about City policies that have deeply impacted the historic fabric of a place, its people and its culture—with mixed results. Bus Tour. Departs Hilton at 1:30pm. Duration approx. 3.5 hours.
