Indie artists, musicians, and farmers need the support of their community to flourish. San Francisco is internationally renowned for unique arts and culture, due mostly to our continued devotion to supporting this value. People are showing an increasing interest in sustainable foods that are seasonable and obtained locally. This market itself is a hybrid, bringing together arts, music and foodie cultures with an emphasis on our local uniqueness. By creating a network and event for local purveyors to mix and exist together, we strengthen our city.
Our mission is to combine local forces and engage the public's awareness with an all new type of market. Whether you are local or a tourist you will learn of many up-and-coming businesses, farms, artists, craftsmen, musicians, and homemade health foods. This event will give lots of exposure to these businesses in a earth-friendly fashion, and will complete a model for a brand new way of conscious shopping that lines up with the growing knowledge of sustainable living.

Mad World: Messages to the Future, an exhibition featuring work by fourteen artists’ that imagine the future in 40 years through a fictional history of objects. In considering work for the exhibition, artists’ were asked ponder the statement, ‘If you’re interested in the future, Invent it.” Responses range from both the artistic representation of objects 40 years from now, to witty and thoughtful statements about our cultural evolution. Through works such as future almanac entries, nomad friendly furniture and functional objects made from discarded material, the exhibition will display a unique imagining of what’s to come.
Last year, Galería organized an exhibition entitled Strange Hope in response to the ambivalent feelings of expectation and despair brought on by the inauguration of the Obama era and the simultaneous downfall of the economy. One year later, with the world in worse shape than ever before, we invited artists to think beyond the troubling times and instead summon a creative visioning of the future.
Mad World: Messages to the Future paves the way for Galería’s 40th anniversary season. The exhibition will include an interactive component in which the public will be invited to share their thoughts, desires, and aspirations of Galería in 40 years. Entries will be included in a catalog as a ‘time capsule,’ which will then be preserved in Galería’s archive at the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives at UC Santa Barbara.
