Official description from Headlands:

Headlands' campus is home to historic artist-renovated military buildings and commissioned renovations by world-reknown artists such as Ann Hamilton and David Ireland. Many visitors come just to visit these renovated spaces for their architectural, artistic, and historical significance. If you'd like to to see a working artist's studio, visit during our AIR season to check out the Project Space studio on the 3rd floor of Building 944. Be sure to bring your camera -- depending on the season, you might also run into deer, a coyote, wild turkeys, or hawks.

Although there is no permanent gallery, Headlands hosts two exhibitions during the year. Breaking Ranks: Human/Nature (January 23 - February 20) is an annual curated exhibition of 22 Bay Area artists. The Graduate Fellow Exhibition (May - June) is a showcase of work by Headlands' Graduate Fellows, a group of nominated artists who are recent graduates from Bay Area MFA programs, and who receive studio space at Headlands for one year.

Wikipedia excerpt:
Situated in a campus of artist-renovated military buildings in the Marin Headlands, Headlands Center for the Arts hosts an internationally recognized Artist in Residence Program, interdisciplinary public programs, and subsidized studio rentals for Bay Area artists of all disciplines. Headlands Center for the Arts (Headlands) provides an environment for creative process and the development of new work and ideas. Through artists’ residencies and public programs, Headlands offers opportunities for artist research, dialogue and exchange that build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Headlands homepage or our exhibitions list for S.F.-wide exhibits.
