art in the tenderloin
Here's an excerpt from a new Veterans Mural being painted in Shannon Alley between Jones and Taylor in the Tenderloin.
"And they can teach us how to make peace with ourselves and each other, so we never have to use violence to resolve conflicts again" - Thich Nhat Hanh.
Add one more to the list of so-called Tenderloin revitalization projects that have sprung up over the last month in the city’s most flavorful neighborhood. Art in Storefronts, a pilot program initiated by Mayor Gavin Newsom, the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) and the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC), launches today. In partnership with neighborhood-based economic development organizations and curated by Triple Base, local artists will showcase their work in 11 original window installations and two murals.
