Heron Arts


Heron Arts was founded in 2013 by Mark Slee, an active member of San Francisco’s creative community, organizing events since the mid-2000s. Prior to Heron Arts, Slee was a member of Facebook’s product design and development team. He is joined in 2015 by directors Noah Antieau and Tova Lobatz, who are pursuing ambitious programming that will encompass installations and experiential interactive environments, alongside traditional gallery exhibitions.

Antieau has been involved in the arts for two decades. He founded Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans and annually curates a section of the LA Art Show, which he has dubbed Littletopia.

Lobatz was formerly the youngest director of a prominent gallery in San Francisco and founded the public arts organization Art City. In the summer of 2014, she was the head curator of the highly successful public art advertising takeover Way Out West.

Collectively the three hope to provide San Francisco with a fresh outlook on contemporary beauty in the arts.
