Spare Change Artist Space operates within the offices of Rhodes & Fletcher, LLC, a wealth management firm in downtown San Francisco. Spare Change Artist Space started in 2005 and exhibits artwork primarily by contemporary local artists and curators, incorporating a theme which is important to both personal finances and art.

All media considered. Due to a limited amount of floor space, large sculpture isn’t recommended. While the space is secure and the risk of theft or damage is extremely minimal, you should know that we do not carry a separate insurance policy for the artwork. Artists will be asked to sign an insurance waiver. We promote the sale of artwork but do not take commissions. Any transaction will be facilitated between the buyer and seller directly. Full details and a curatorial agreement are available upon request.
