A New Beginning:
Chinese Culture Center Undergoes Major Renovation

Opened in 1973, the Chinese Culture Center has a long history of community service.  It has provided exhibitions on art and culture, cultural performances and seminars, classes in language, music, painting and tai chi; youth oriented family history program; heritage and culinary tours of Chinatown.

The 32 year old facility is outdated and suffered from the normal wear and tear of an old structure.  As part of a new lease amendment with Justice Investors, owners of the building, our Center will undergo a $3.53 million makeover starting June 1, 2005 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.  The remodeled Center will have a state-of-the art auditorium and audio-visual set-up, expanded gallery and shop space, new classrooms and offices.  With the new facilities, it is our mission to expand services to youth, the immediate Chinese community as well as the great San Francisco community in mounting culturally relevant educational events, programs and exhibitions.

During renovation, the Center will continue to operate at a temporary location: 555 Montgomery Street, 16th Floor, Suite 1650, San Francisco, CA 94111.  If you have any questions, please contact Gloria Tai, Executive Director of the Center, at (415) 986-1822.  Our telephone number and mailing address will remain the same during renovation.
