Headlands Center for the Arts

At The Edge

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.

Where we are is as important as what we do. Our campus comprises a cluster of artist-rehabilitated military buildings, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge at historic Fort Barry in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Headlands artists programs support artists of all disciplines—from visual artists to performers, musicians, writers, and videographers—and provide opportunities for independent and collaborative creative work. Our impact is evident in the lives and careers of the artists who have participated in our programs and the experiences of our visitors.

About twice a month we host 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.

Headlands Center for the Arts is about people, their ideas, and the things they make, and what we do is only possible thanks to the generosity of those who support us.

We can tell you more, but the best way to really understand is to visit.
