Gallery 16 was founded in 1995 and conceived of as a new model in contemporary arts support on 16th Street in The Mission. Their objective was to show contemporary work in all media done by today's most exciting emerging and mid-career artists.
Now located in SoMa, Gallery 16 represents a new model for arts funding. Their opening in SoMa marks a new development in the marriage between buisness, technology, and the arts. It is a marriage in which a gallery devoted to showing progressive visual art could become an intregal part of a high tech business plan without sacrificing the integrity of the work it shows. This trust shows the faith buisnesses can and should have in the value of arts support, and the inspiring results from such collaborations.
