Situated in historic Ross Alley in San Francisco Chinatown, 41 Ross launched in 2014 as a collaboration between the Chinatown Community Development Center and the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco. Functioning as an art gallery, interactive creative studio, and community resource space, 41 Ross brings together local residents, neighbors, and visitors to engage in art and culture-making activities. Through its cultural programming, 41 Ross aims to promote dialogue, appreciation, and creative engagement around the local culture practice by everyday people in Chinatown.
