The Red Poppy Art House presents a diverse range of performing artists at its intimate storefront venue in San Francisco’s Mission District. As a fiscally sponsored project of Intersection for the Arts, it uses an innovative business model to present 140 performances of mostly world, jazz, and classical music for 8,000 people each year. With renewed support, the Red Poppy Art House would continue to present a year-round series of performances. In addition, it would increase the number of performances by Latino/a artists, implement a professional development program to increase the group’s capacity, and hire an executive director.
