Open House

Open House

Sunday, August 28, 12–5PM
Headlands Center for the Arts

Make a reservation.

Open House provides a once-a-season opportunity to roam the various buildings of our campus, meet current artists, view works in progress, and attend screenings, performances, and readings. See what Artists in Residence and Graduate Fellows are up to in their studios, stop by the Project Space installation by Andreas Johansson, and grab lunch from the Mess Hall.

Although we’re increasing event capacity and opening up more of the campus, we’re also continuing to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19 by encouraging reservations and requiring masks worn indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Please note:

  • All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask over the nose and mouth at all times while indoors—no neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, or face coverings with valves, mesh, or holes.
  • Contact tracing is an important part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Please contact if you test positive for COVID-19 or experience COVID-19 symptoms following your visit.
  • Mess Hall food service ends at 4:30PM.
  • Parking is limited to street parking and overflow parking at the Visitor Center lot. If you can, we encourage you to carpool or bike.

First-floor spaces in use for this event (Mess Hall, Key Room, Latrine, The Commons) are accessible to people with mobility aids. Second- and third-floor spaces (Project Space) are currently accessible only by stairs. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please reach out to us in advance at
