Event Details

This holiday season, visit Creativity Explored at the Ferry Building for a Holiday Art Pop-Up Shop supporting neurodiverse and disabled Bay Area artists.

Each Saturday from November 27 through December 18, 2021, join Creativity Explored from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM for a day of shopping, art activities, and contests. 

Ferry Building visitors and holiday-goers are invited to explore and shop original drawings, paintings, prints, ceramics, tapestries, and one-of-a-kind fashions created by CE artists – plus, stock up on gift-giving essentials with CE wrapping paper, greetings cards, artful accessories, books, stationery, art supplies and more. As always, artists earn income directly from each sale!

In celebration of the partnership between two iconic San Francisco institutions, the Creativity Explored community will host a series of experiences at the Holiday Art Pop-Up Shop in partnership with the Ferry Building during operating hours:

  • Every Saturday, get to know a different CE artist and their artwork during casual Meet-and-Greet events. CE artists are excited to reconnect and show you what they’ve been creating!
  • Throughout December, the CE Holiday Art Pop-up Shop will also feature an art-making activity led by the Museum of Craft and Design. The activities are inspired by the Mode Brut fashion exhibit – on view through January 22, 2022 – which features original garments and fiber art by Creativity Explored artists created with local designers. 
  • Every week Creativity Explored will host a free contest at the pop-up shop featuring art supplies by Sakura, SF Icons Burnt Caramel Truffles chocolates from Recchiuti Confections, and limited-edition CE products.

Leading up to the series of pop-ups, a large-scale reproduction of artwork by CE artist Lien Nguyen (b. 1960, Vietnam) will bring a fantastical San Francisco skyline inside the Ferry Building for the public to enjoy. During the residency, the display will be viewable on the gates of the storefront from Sundays through Fridays.
