Kino Art SF
Started in January of 2016, Kinokuniya San Francisco opened a new exhibition space for the Bay Area local artists. "Kino Art SF" showcased a new Bay Area artist each month, exhibiting their creativity and passion for art. Any artists residing in the San Francisco Bay Area were welcomed to submit for a potential showing. Each artist had approximately three weeks to exhibit their work at the store's exhibition space located next to the second floor staircase.
"We are excited to offer space at our [San Francisco] store to local artists. Our goal is simple: to offer an intimate space for local artists to exhibit their creativity. We encourage all local artists in any medium to submit for this space. We look forward to meeting and showcasing talented artists in the Bay Area." - Masahiro Kumashima, Regional Manager, Northern California (January, 2016)
We had a total of 12 artists showcase their work and we thank each one of them for taking part in Kino Art SF. Although we are currently utilizing the space for our next project, we hope to bring Kino Art SF back in some shape or form. Please see below our wonderful 12 artists who exhibited their work for Kino Art SF.
