Twenty-one artists are making cradles now that will be sold to benefit Firelight and our work with children in Africa. Learn more about our relationship with The Cradle Project

Purchase a Cradle

If we find value in found and discarded materials for fine art, what else are we overlooking? The cradles in The Cradle Project represent the 48 million African children orphaned by AIDS and poverty. The exhibit was recently shown in Santa Cruz, CA and now it comes to San Francisco.

Gallery hours: Wednesday to Sunday 1-6pm

The Cradle Project is an art installation designed to engage and inspire local art communities (artists, viewers, and collectors) while raising awareness about the plight and potential of orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. This exhibit brings together new cradles created by 21 Bay area artists with selected cradles from past exhibitions in New Mexico (2008) and Washington D.C. (2012).
