YBCA: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) is an integrated site of creative endeavor; a unique fusion of art, innovation and ideas in a social environment. It serves as a curated platform for the dynamic convergence of artists, inventors, producers, thinkers, and community to sustain multiple levels of participation, propel short and long term social change, and insure that live arts and living artists are vital to society. YBCA is a multi-disciplinary arts center with a vision to “place contemporary art at the heart of community life.” YBCA presents contemporary art from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world that reflects the profound issues and ideas of our time, expands the boundaries of artistic practice, and celebrates the diversity of human experience and expression.
