Headlands Center for the Arts is a multidisciplinary, international arts center dedicated to supporting artists, the creative process, and the development of new, innovative ideas and artwork.

Headlands campus comprises a cluster of artist-rehabilitated military buildings, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge at historic Fort Barry in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA).

GGNRA is one of the largest urban parks in the world and is known for its rich biodiversity. The park encompasses 59 miles of bay and ocean shoreline and has military fortifications that span centuries of California history, from the Spanish conquistadors to Cold War¬¬–era Nike missile sites.

Headlands Center for the Arts is just 15 minutes outside of San Francisco, USA.

Detailed schedule included an artist residency program at Headland Center for the Arts for 3 months, and a period of traveling in New York for 2 months.



Headland Center for the Arts near San Francisco had been rehabilitated from an old navy base in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It has a beautiful view and a comfortable living situation, and is well-equipped with work studios, cafeteria, residential spaces, and etc. There were artists from the Bay Area, from out-of-state, and from other countries residing at the arts center. Cars were provided for the artists not from neighboring towns, and I was able to drive to museums, movie theaters, bookstores, and other places near the university town of University of California, Berkley.



During my 2 months’ travels, I visited galleries and museums in New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C. I had also participated in many different types of art activities in these places.
