New Ep Alert! These art world heroes are revolutionizing SF's gallery scene
You can't miss it—and you shouldn't! Learn more about the Minnesota Street Project from founders Deborah and Andy Rappaport in Episode 3 of our podcast, Live With Art.
On this episode of Live With Art, 20x200 boss (see: “bawse”) Jen Bekman has a full blown fangirl moment chatting with the game-changing founders of San Francisco’s Minnesota Street Project: Deborah and Andy Rappaport. Established collectors and custodians of the arts, Andy and Deborah took matters into their own hands to protect and foster San Francisco’s contemporary art community. In the process, they’ve built a framework for the future — a sustainable arts destination that should be on every art lover's mind.
MSP consists of more than 100,000 square feet of gallery and studio space, offering something seriously rare and needed in the SF area: economical spaces that art galleries, artists and art nonprofits can actually afford. The (free! open to the public!) galleries at 1275 Minnesota St. and 1150 25th St. top Jen’s must-see recs for visitors in SF, and one peek at what they’re up to will tell you why. There’s also an art storage and service business that taps into the Rappaports’ wealth of knowledge as experienced art collectors 40 years running.
Are the Rappaports modern day art-world heroes? Close enough. Feel super by proxy when you tune into our new podcast episode, then sign up for MSP’s newsletter while you’re at it.
