Since 1980, City Arts & Lectures has presented events with leading figures in the world of art & ideas. Each season, there are more than fifty lectures and onstage conversations — and a few surprise performances — with outstanding figures in literature, criticism, science, and the performing arts, offering the most diverse perspectives about ideas and values. City Arts & Lectures programs can be heard in edited and delayed broadcasts on more than 130 public radio stations across the country. The broadcasts are co-produced with KQED 88.5 FM in San Francisco.



City Arts & Lectures restored and reopened the stunning 1,687-seat hall in 2013 (it was closed to the public for over thirty years). Read about it in the Huffington Post here, the New York Times here, and the San Francisco Chronicle here.

Parking available at the Civic Center Plaza Garage (355 McAllister), Performing Arts Garage (360 Grove St), 110 Franklin Street (at Oak), and Star Park (69 Polk Street).
