For Randy Shaw's big dreams of the Tenderloin becoming a tourist destination to come true, it's going to take more than evoking memories from times long passed and eating delicious banh mi. But one thing the Tenderloin definitely has going for itself is art, and the CBD Gallery's "Woman Hood: Work by Tenderloin Women Artists" is no exception. Featuring crafts, painting, and photography by women of the Tenderloin community, the show's curators hope to provide public exposure to the neighborhood's many unknown female artists and foster a greater sense of community within the troubled 'loin. The show will be open noon - 3, Fridays and Saturdays, through May 29 at CBD Gallery (134 Golden Gate Avenue).
