I Live Here:SF

Happy Hour with Muni Diaries & I Live Here:SF This Wednesday

This Wednesday, November 17th marks a new kind of happy hour. At SOMArts from 5-8 pm, celebrate with your fellow workers bees fresh from the office at Muni Diaries' and I Live Here:SF's happy hour, in which you can offer up your own Muni horror stories and fairy tales under a real Muni bus shelter (a generous donation by the SFMTA). Your stories will be collected and unveiled on a new Muni Diaries page called "Muni Time Capsule", a trove of Muni ephemera from days gone by.

Gallery Exhibition for I Live Here:SF

As blind dates go, our city is a damn good one - as proven by Julie Michelle, who never fails to come home with a gem, whether it’s a red wall named Jack, a reflected roof top, or a mural of bulbous cartoon aliens. Every week she hauls her camera around the city to meet locals on chill mornings in the Japanese Tea Garden or sunny afternoons in the Lower Haight, snapping photos as they show her the corners and crevices they call home.

“I never took photos of people,” Michelle admits. “I avoided it. The whole thing scared me.” But when a friend asked for help with head shots, she leveled her viewfinder on a human one fateful foggy day in Golden Gate Park and was immediately smitten. The seed of the project was born after she recognized a common desire while chatting with a Yemen-born market owner in the Tenderloin. “We, as San Franciscans, whether we’re natives or transplants, have a particular love of sharing our stories about the city.”
