Headlands Center for the ArtsSausalito, CA
Headlands Center for the Arts is a multidisciplinary, international arts center dedicated to supporting artists; the creative process; and the development of new, innovative ideas and artwork. Through a range of programs for artists and the public, we offer opportunities for reflection, dialogue, and exchange that build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.
Headlands artist programs support artists of all disciplines—from visual artists to performers, musicians, writers, and videographers—and provide opportunities for independent and collaborative creative work. The center hosts monthly public events such as open houses, exhibitions, conversations, community meals, walks, and workshops. Regardless of the format, events are designed to connect visitors to art in real time. Our impact is evident in the lives and careers of the artists who have participated in our programs and the experiences of our visitors.
Since our founding in 1982, Headlands has supported over 1,200 artists. The risk- taking and innovation that these individuals began during their time at Headlands has lead to groundbreaking work that fills museums, galleries, theaters, bookstores, libraries, and public spaces around the world.
