Local Love / Online Art Exhibit / Support for Bay Area Artists During COVID-19 - presented by MUSEPOP

Welcome to the Local Love exhibition.

Local Love is an online exhibit which aims to support and showcase San Francisco Bay Area artists and groups during the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibit is open to any artist or group working in any medium. All artists and groups receive 100% of donations and payments on their exhibit pages.

About the Current Exhibit:

We have been running weekly artist exhibits for 8 straight weeks an the Local Love platform has been live since March 23. We have 63 total artists and groups on the site from the past exhibits. You can explore and support them in the Exhibit Archive. Thank you to all the artists and groups who participated and the community that has been offering support. We are moving the Local Love program to a monthly. Local Love 2.0 will be launching in June. This version will be be less about emergency funding and more about telling artists stories in an interesting way. We are going to try to push the medium of online artist presentations and exhibitions. Please get in touch if you have ideas or submissions. Sending lots of ♥

What to expect:

Each artist page is a small window into their world with links to their broader work and offerings. We encourage you to take some time to explore, enjoy, connect and support if possible. Please give us a follow on Instagram and Facebook if you like a healthy dose of local art in your feeds.

How it Works:

We have set up our online exhibit system so you can be in direct contact with any artist or group you would like to support or communicate with.

All donations and purchases go directly to the artists and groups via their provided payment link. MUSEPOP is not a go-between in the payment process. We are curating and promoting creative projects for people and groups that we love, and our creative community that needs support.

If you are someone who has the financial means of supporting the Bay Area creative community, please consider making a donation, purchase, or deposit towards an original work. It is very rewarding to support original creative works, and that act provides an immeasurable amount of validation to an artist and their creative practice.

We thank you in advance for your support!
