Canvas Brings The Artform of Graffiti to the Masses on Market St.
Breathing (or not) new life into the former The Hall on Market, War Horse LLC and Tidewater Capital—the building's current owners—partnered with Cameron Moberg, to bring the art of graffiti to a whole new extreme.
When was the last time you were allowed to paint on the walls or collaborate with friends in the creation of art? Now you can! The Canvas offers you a space to get wild and creative with your next personal or professional outing, team building exercise, or kid's party! Formerly the Hall, an acclaimed temporary food+drink+community venue in San Francisco, The Canvas is an events space that also serves as an outlet for your creative energy and pursuits. We're partnering with renowned San Francisco street artist Camer1 to offer graffiti lessons, spray paint battles, games, and more.
So if ever wanted to live out your graffiti dreams and try your hand at a new art, then why not give them a try? Sadly, the pop-up won't be around for long as The Hall is set to be demolished early next year. Moberg told Hoodline that he grew up on 6th Street, and that his early interest in the art form grew into a full-blown passion. The bio on his website says he still lives in the city, and that he teaches art classes for all ages.
Currently, the space offers three varying options for your time at Canvas, firstly a 20-person minimum party (ideal for businesses, or birthdays), the second is for kid's parties with a minimum 15 and a maximum 50 participants, and lastly is an artist's live painting exhibition, the site explains that you can hire one of San Francisco's top street artists to paint a canvas while you dine. You choose the canvas size, the type of art and theme, and we'll find you the best artist for your event.
So TLDR: team-building groups of 20 or more are $75 per person, and celebrations for 15 to 50 people are $30 per hour, per person. You'd also get a chance to take home your designs on t-shirts, tote bags, or other merch for an additional fee.
So get sprayin' and tell them we sent you.
