WHAT THEIR BUSINESS IS ABOUT: Opened in August 2007, Secession Art & Design is a hub for emerging and established artists, designers and supporters of San Francisco’s independent arts community. Like an ongoing trunk show of the best locally-produced art and design offerings from the Bay Area and beyond, the space houses a rotating collection handpicked by gallery owner and curator Eden Stein alongside the work of in-house artists and designers Colleen Mauer, Heather Robinson, New Skool and Stein’s own Twelve Designs. Promoting a strong local community, the gallery donates a portion of the proceeds from each show to non-profit organizations.

LOCATION: 3361 Mission St @ 30th St , San Francisco
