That all being said, the time has finally come. We must now ask for your support in order to keep the rent and bills paid during the COVID-19 crisis. The impact on artists and venues has been enormously devastating worldwide, and Honey Hive Gallery is no exception. The mandatory shutdown has of course cancelled all of our upcoming events, indefinitely. It also has threatened the individual incomes of the artists renting workspace here. Nothing has yet come of any financial assistance applications that the business has submitted. Without some sort of aid in the coming months, we will have no choice but to close our doors for good. The Honey Hive Gallery aims to continue being an inviting and accessible creative space for all kinds of people in the San Francisco Bay Area art community and beyond. Please help us keep it open with whatever you can comfortably donate! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed your presence in the past, we hope to see you all soon!
The money being asked for in this campaign should be enough just to pay rent and expenses owed while the space is closed to the public for the next few months. This includes utilities, insurance, taxes, permit/license fees and more. Any funds raised beyond our goal of covering basic business expenses would be spent on improving the space for future events. This would include upgrading audio equipment, lighting, ventilation improvements, etc. For any questions, please feel free to reach out to [email redacted] .
