Westfield San Francisco Centre’s new debut, Musiquarium @ The Selfie Market, hits a high note.
Drop the mic! Musiquarium at The Selfie Market—a 6,000-square-foot immersive playground at the Westfield San Francisco Centre—opens April 29. Put simply, this curated experience combining art, music and community, with a powerful call to action for young adults, absolutely rocks.
Musiquarium at The Selfie Market is a 30-wall, 10-gallery of unique exhibits; social-media-ready selfie backdrops; and dynamic concert photography, including shots by local photog Misha Vladimirskiy and Selfie Market partner Bring the Music Home, an organization that offers a backstage look at an industry sidelined by the pandemic. The Selfie Market also teamed with partner When the Music Stops on the interactive art installation “Stage Door.” Mimicking the non-profit’s mission to support emotional and mental health, as well as suicide prevention, the installation aims to help millennials and Gen Z—demos that The Selfie Market tilts toward—understand that, should they feel alone, When the Music Stops is there. “It’s a strong message, but we believe it will create a unique connection to our attendees, for those seeking or curious to learn more about mental health,” says Robin Herman, founder of The Selfie Market. The retail shop inside the Selfie Market, meanwhile, offers an array of merch supporting local bands and venues, including limited editions and exclusives (100% of proceeds from WTMS purchases will go to the organization). From hip-hop to rock to pop, Musiquairum at The Selfie Market is where the beat goes on. Tickets are $33 for general admission; $18 for seniors and kids 10 and under (children under 3 are free); proceeds from Thursdays ticket sales will benefit WTMS and venues closed during the pandemic.
