The Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA) is a community of artists who rent studios in the former U.S. naval shipyard on Hunters Point in the Bayview community of San Francisco and in the nearby Islais Creek Studios. An artist community since 1983, the Hunters Point Shipyard is now home to more than 250 artists.
These are working studios that are open to the public two weekends a year for Spring and Fall Open Studios. Our website provides information about upcoming Open Studios and gives you year-round access to the artists who make up the community.

The Shipyard Trust for the Arts (STAR) maintains this website. STAR is the nonprofit group of artists and supporters dedicated to “conserving affordable San Francisco art studios and work space, supporting Bayview/Hunters Point community art programs, and creating educational and exhibition opportunities.”
