Downtown building turns into Art Maze II

By Jodi Schwan

A historic downtown building will be turned into a maze of artwork and performances Friday and Saturday.

Art Maze II will be in the L’Abri building at Sixth Street and Phillips Avenue. That’s also the home base for Exposure Gallery & Studios, whose owner Zach DeBoer started Art Maze last year.

That event was held in the then-vacant former DM&E building, which now has been remodeled as Riverview Square. A Halloween-themed event was held in October in the former Skelly’s building.

“Four-story empty buildings are hard to come by, so our area is smaller than last year’s, but the quality of artwork is just as high,” DeBoer said. “Because space was more limited, artists had to submit proposals and be selected to be part of the show this year.”

About 30 artists will be part of the event, including sculptors and performers.

Art Maze won’t become a standing event but rather something that “happens whenever an interesting situation presents itself,” DeBoer said. “We never want to be predictable, and we always want to keep folks guessing.”

Art Maze II is sponsored by Northwestern Mutual, which will have a stand set up as part of the national cancer charity Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

The free event runs from 5 to 11 p.m. July 7 and 8. For a preview, search  #ArtMaze 2 or #ArtMazeSF on social media.
