McEvoy Foundation for the Arts
McEvoy Foundation for the Arts presents exhibitions and events that engage, expand, and challenge themes in the McEvoy Family Collection. Established in 2017, McEvoy Arts’ vision is to create an open, intimate, and welcoming setting for private contemplation and community discussion about art and culture.
Rooted in the creative legacies of the San Francisco Bay Area, McEvoy Arts embodies a far-reaching vision of the McEvoy Family Collection’s potential to facilitate and engage conversations on the practice of contemporary art. We invite artists, curators, and thinkers with varied perspectives to respond to the Collection. These collaborations produce three annual exhibitions in McEvoy Arts’ gallery, new media programs in the Screening Room, as well as dozens of film, music, literary, and performing arts events each year.
McEvoy Arts’ exhibitions and events calendar is produced in collaboration with local, national, and international cultural and arts organizations that broaden the boundaries of the visual arts and invite the participation of diverse communities. In addition to these collaborative programs, McEvoy Arts provides opportunities for selected partners to engage privately with exhibitions by donating our space and resources to events that further the Foundation’s mission.
