Southern Exposure (SoEx) is a nonprofit visual arts organization that supports emerging artists and youth in a dynamic environment in which they can develop and present new work and ideas. An active presence in the Bay Area for 37 years, the organization evolves in response to the needs of artists and the community, engaging the public in the artists’ work. SoEx reaches out to diverse audiences and serves as a forum and resource center to provide extraordinary support to the Bay Area's arts and education communities. Activities range from arts education programs, exhibitions of local, regional, and international visual artists’ work, public art projects, grants, and lectures, workshops, panel discussions, and performances. SoEx is dedicated to giving artists and youth—whether they are teaching, exhibiting, curating, or learning—an opportunity to realize ideas for projects that may not otherwise find support.
