Houston—Houston, Mission Control has a problem. The storied control room at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston—recognizable to many of us from 1960s news clips of the dawn of the Space Age––is in need of a face-lift. And so, Space Center Houston, the visitor’s center for the JSC, has turned to the latest in financing […]

- A partnership to design San Francisco’s future
By Deborah Cullinan - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Focusing on inquiry and our promise to be the creative home for civic action, we invited people — artists, designers, planners and more — to discuss and debate that question.[...] by gathering diverse perspectives around this line of inquiry, we produced a cascading series of answers that made an impact far beyond the arts.[...] this abundant conversation led to new ways of thinking about how our cities change, and it opened the door to a groundbreaking partnership between our center and the San Francisco Planning Department.Each year we invite artists, engineers, athletes, scientists, teachers, activists and other creative changemakers who are leading cultural movements to an event called the YBCA100 Summit.A final platform involves civic coalitions that create lasting change and policy shifts.In response to questions of equity and labor, YBCA’s Youth Fellows partnered with the Healthy Corner Store Coalition and developed a Tenderloin Food Justice community art campaign in collaboration with residents in the Tenderloin, one of our city’s most socially and economically challenged neighborhoods and a food desert.During their school-year-long fellowships, the participating teens designed and installed art interventions specifically for the Tenderloin’s Mid City Market, one of five convenience stores that the Tenderloin Healthy Corner Store Coalition has recently converted into a place filled with fresh fruits and vegetables.YBCA also helped create the Tenderloin People’s Garden, a community space bringing together hundreds of volunteers of all ages, ethnicities and cultures to grow food — and offering their garden as a place for Tenderloin youth and their families to build knowledge and community.Since membership is about citizenship — about being part of an institution — people should be invited to participate at whatever price they can afford, so that our arts center can be about igniting inclusive, lasting forward momentum.Arts institutions of all shapes and sizes across our country have the creative resources needed to inspire us to participate in our struggling democracy, to fuel our public imagination.

- Warriors’ championship trophy takes a star turn in SF
By Rachel Swan - Monday Jul 3, 2017
The Warriors clinched the 2017 Finals in Oakland, but their trophy has already inched its way across the bridge — two years before the team’s anticipated move to a flashy arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay.Fans lined up by the dozens to see the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy when it cameoed at Westfield San Francisco Centre on Sunday, giving the public a taste of what will happen when Oakland’s team relocates to the land of cable cars and tech startups.Some fans viewed the team’s forthcoming resettlement as a homecoming, given that the Warriors played in San Francisco from 1962 to 1971.Winifred Devera, an ardent devotee who lives South of Market, said he was eager to welcome the team home.The Warriors’ plans to start their 2019 season in the privately financed, billion-dollar Chase Center arena have caused resentment to simmer among fans in their current East Bay home.Longtime ticket-holders who supported the team during a years-long slump say the prices at Chase Center would probably be out of reach.Many, including Wilson, are also reeling from the impending loss of the Oakland Raiders, who will depart for Las Vegas in 2020.
