Saint Joseph’s Arts Society

San Francisco based interior design extraordinaire Ken Fulk’s latest and greatest venture is Saint Joseph’s Arts Society. A 22,000-square-foot Romanesque revival church and historical landmark in the SF SOMA district that until recent years was a sad, abandoned and crumbling relic surrounded by rusty cyclone fencing. Fulk has now transformed it into a gorgeous and gleaming space for art, retail, and performances.

Surrounding the altar is a 30-foot-high print of Catherine Wagner’s photographic work “Sala Degli Imperatori,” an image taken in the Room of the Emperors at theCapitoline Museum in Rome. Assouline and French apothecary Buly 1803 offer luxury books and perfumes. Everywhere there are beautiful vintage rugs and salons draped with custom Pierre Frey fabrics and it wouldn’t be a Ken Fulk project without a variety of lush botanicals for sale at a French-inspired flower booth.

The programming will include readings, lectures, performances, and feasts that reflect Fulk’s mantra, which has also become Saint Joseph’s unofficial tagline: “Every moment matters.” Names that might appear on the schedule include photographer Mary McCartney, filmmaker John Waters, and authors Amy Tan, Michael Cunningham, and Alice Sebold.

Saint Joseph’s Arts Society is located at 1401 Howard Street in San Francisco.
