Review for Root Division, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I interned over the summer and would intern there again. I was able to teach an after school program at a middle school through the gallery, as well as learn some of the ropes on running a non-profit art gallery. It provides a great service to the San Francisco arts community, experience for artists (when I had none in teaching or the general art gallery world), cheap studio space, and awesome shows like Taste, and New Growth (students art exhibit). The location and hours are very open to the public and the classes are great!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Real people. They were very open and friendly, egos were out the door when it came to the artist-staff-intern relationships, and the artist were driven and hard working. I felt like part of a team.
