All in one: Explore the art galleries at 49 Geary

Sometimes you want to do an art walk with more art and less walk. Already known by local fine art enthusiasts, 49 Geary Art Galleries can be a pleasant surprise in downtown SF for those not as steeped in the art world. The multi-floor array of galleries sits in a single building off Market Street around the corner from Montgomery Station. It’s easy, free and accessible. Did we mention free?

Whether you’re hitting up the popular First Thursday art parties for a buzzing social scene in which drinks and bites often come with exhibit openings, or yearning for a peaceful and uncrowded afternoon amidst silent walls showcasing a mishmash of artistic mediums, 49 Geary will help you reconnect with your inner sophisticate.

Here are some galleries spread amongst the second, fourth and fifth floors within one address. Take a stroll through the halls and see what pulls your eyes and makes you want to peel a piece off the wall.
