The Yerba Buena Alliance is proud to announce the Spring 2013 Yerba Buena Gallery Walk—an afternoon showcasing the artistic offerings of the Yerba Buena neighborhood between Market and Harrison and 2nd and 5th Streets in downtown San Francisco.

On Saturday, June 8, 3–6pm, 13 renowned galleries open their doors for visitors to enjoy exhibitions, events, and refreshments, highlighting the area as a home of art and culture in the city of San Francisco and providing an unforgettable opportunity to engage with the diverse art community in the area.
