Unveiling Secrets: A Journey through Hunters Point Shipyard's Hidden History

June 10, 2023, 12 PM - 1PM

Exclusive 1-hour Shipyard History Tour:

Join Stacey Carter for a fascinating 1-hour guided history tour of Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco. Discover the significant role this site played in the US Navy's defense and wartime efforts. Starting as the earliest and largest dry-dock repair facility on the West Coast, it has transformed into the largest artist studio complex in the US today.

Through buildings visible at the Shipyard overlook, Carter will take you on a chronological journey, highlighting its military development from 1867 to the Cold War and its present-day significance.

About Stacey Carter

Stacey Carter, an artist with a studio at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, has dedicated herself to visually documenting the site. Driven by her curiosity about the decaying structures, she embarked on extensive independent research to uncover the lesser-known history and its global impact. For the past 20 years, Carter has been passionately working on a long-term, multi-faceted documentary art project based on her research and artwork centered around Hunters Point Shipyard.
