The Commons is Headlands Center for the Arts' newest artist-led enhancement to our historic campus located just north of San Francisco in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. In celebration of this project and its opening, artist Sarah Klein was commissioned to create "You Are Here," a stop-motion animation about Headlands' 35 years of cultivating creativity and community.
The Commons includes thoughtful architectural elements designed by CMG Landscape Architecture and site-specific artworks by Ball-Nogues Studio, Chris Kabel, and Nathan Lynch. The Commons will open to the public on Sunday, September 17, 2017, with a free daytime celebration featuring art installations, live music, family-friendly activities, food trucks, and more.
