The Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) is an opening night beneficiary. BRAF supports and promotes community, interactive art and civic participation. BRAF works with communities in the Bay Area and around the world to collaboratively produce innovative, relevant and pioneering works of public art that build community. To date, BRAF has supported over 20 projects in the Bay Area and over 60 projects worldwide.

BRAF is breaking ground and challenging the expectations of public artworks. We seek to not only share innovative, extraordinary works of art to local communities, but to invite their involvement, participation and collaboration, creating stewardship of and personal relationships with works of art. BRAF has formed lasting, fruitful partnerships with the Port Authority of San Francisco, the San Francisco Department of the Environment, the Hayes Valley Arts Coalition and other arts collectives and neighborhood groups.

The Black Rock Arts Foundation seeks to sustain the momentum of building  support and growth, and to develop lasting partnerships. We endeavor to establish a new standard that can be shared around the world – an expectation of community collaboration in public art – and to empower individuals to manifest art in their own communities.
