In honor of Equal Pay Day 2018, Hired is taking a creative new approach to addressing the gender wage gap.

The Shape of Change is an immersive art installation to bring to life data from Hired's annual State of Wage Inequality report. Created by acclaimed artist, Val Britton, the installation will foster creative problem solving and dialog around gender equality, diversity and inclusion while it is on display at Minnesota Street Project from April 10th to 14th.


On Friday the 13th, you're invited to a special happy hour viewing of The Shape of Change. We'll enjoy wine and beer in the transformed atrium of Minnesota Street Project.

Located in San Francisco’s Dogpatch, Minnesota Street Project offers affordable spaces for galleries, artists, and related nonprofits. Supported in part by an innovative Art Services and Storagebusiness, the Project was founded on the belief that support for the arts today requires an inherently sustainable model suited to the evolving landscape of art practice and patronage. 

While viewing The Shape of Change at 1275 Minnesota St., visitors are encouraged to visit the Project's ten charter galleries, each presenting a unique perspective on the contemporary art landscape. A current list of exhibitions at 1275 Minnesota Street can be found here.
