KD's Bay Area Gallery
About this listing
Moving to the Bay Area means becoming a part of a community rich in culture and innovation. In partnership with Nike Basketball and Victor Solomon, I've curated a gallery experience that celebrates my journey through the game: from my quiet beginnings in AAU growing up in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, to elevating my game to the professional league and The City.
On 10.21, spend the night in this space that embodies the ultimate intersection of art, culture, and sport.
Located in San Francisco’s South of Market district on Rincon Hill, the space features my own personal touches with the help of thoughtful curation by my friend Victor Solomon. When you arrive, make yourself at home and enjoy this one of a kind space.
The gallery is a celebration of the evolution of basketball, represented by the wide-ranging contrast between the hand-made wood backboard and well-worn street balls, to ornate stained-glass and lustrous gold basketballs.
It’s a celebration of my journey and evolution through basketball, too. From quiet beginnings growing up in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, as a kid playing for the local AAU league, to getting drafted to play professionally at age 19, to elevating my game to The City.
And this is only the beginning.
The art may be ballin', but save the games for the hard top. Please don't move or touch the artwork in the gallery.
I've been known to enjoy capturing moments and places in time. Let the gallery space inspire you to capture your own memories.
Feel free to share about your time here on social, but keep the #NightAt experience between you and your plus one. No additional guests are allowed over.
Own the gallery like it's your own. Take a walk through my photo gallery while you walk in your new pair of KDs.

About the Host, Kevin
Originally from Seat Pleasant, Maryland, I am now excited to call The City home. From the food, to tech, to music, I’m hyped to explore this new city and get to know the people who have already shown me so much love and support. Can’t wait to hear what you love most about The Bay.
