The magic makers


Looking Up Arts Foundation is a San Francisco-based non-profit organization established in 2018 dedicated to large scale art installations. Looking Up supports local artists for the production, exhibition, and public dissemination of exciting and extraordinary art projects, focusing primarily on art festivals and interactive exhibitions.

Looking Up focuses its support on installations that are fresh, ambitious, and interactive. Grants are given to projects that are typically large in scale, a specialized arena in which artists, designers, engineers, and tradespersons collaborate to make extraordinary, labor-intensive projects of love.
