HVAW’s “Transformation Station”
We’re hosting an affiliate event as part of @GCAS2018; find out about our Transformation Station. #GCAS2018 #StepUp2018
Participate in climate action through art at HVAW’s three Community Transformation Stations:
- Transform plastic water bottles into flowers, led by The Arc of San Francisco – bring a plastic water bottle to make into flowers that will become part of the “Recycle Tree” that The Arc of San Francisco will have on exhibit in the sculpture garden at HVAW, made entirely of recycled materials. Please bring empty plastic water bottles to the event to transform!
- Transform the Maker’s Shed into a community Portrait Gallery – Create portraits – of yourself, friends, neighbors, pets, or other community members – to transform the wooden Maker’s Shed on site into a community portrait gallery using reused and upcycled materials. Please bring any materials or recycled materials from the neighborhood to use in your portraits. All portraits will fit into approximately 3″ diameter roughly circular spaces on the exterior of the Portrait Gallery.
- Transform t-shirts into tote bags – Please bring an old t-shirt to transform. Inspired by The Wear Movement to reduce textile waste in SF.

Stairwell’s Valley Step Works
HVAW is excited to announce the residency of Stairwell’s during the month of August, culminating in a celebratory daytime event on Sunday, August 28.
A collaborative project led by San Francisco-based artists Sarah Hotchkiss and Carey Lin, Stairwell’s creates new experiences that challenge familiar understandings of everyday surroundings. The project has taken many forms, from site-specific interventions to group walking tours to curated exhibitions. Stairwell’s seeks to foster temporary communities of curious and engaged individuals, providing opportunities for connections and changes in perspective.
Stairwell’s will hold on-site hours at HVAW as they develop their final event: an exploratory walk, circuit training of the non-athletic variety and prizes for those who do something exceptionally well.]
