Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area. Chris Treggiari is a Resident Artist at Root Division.
Queens Nails Projects is a curatorial platform dedicated to presenting collaborative, site-specific and experimental projects by both artists and independent curators. QNP aims to challenge both emerging and established cultural producers to work outside their normal practice in order to produce new and unique projects. Queens Nails Projects is located in the Mission district of San Francisco, and is co-directed and curated by Bay Area visual artists Mike Bianco and Julio Cesar Morales.
