Block Fest = Fun. Free. First. Friday.

Every first Friday of the month from 3PM-4:30PM locally sourced Artist Activators will  offer up free art making and sharing up and down our block of Turk Street. From live performance and art exhibition to screen printing workshops and crochet jams, Block Fest is a monthly tasting and testing of the Tenderloin’s creative spirit.

March 3rd Block Fest with Dawn Leigh Evinger and SF Recovery Theatre

Dawn Leigh Evinger’s Collective Community Visual Art Creation focuses on the architecture and musical heritage, which spans from jazz to punk, of the Tenderloin. The creation will be made up of a collection of small canvases, tiled together to create a larger work which will be displayed in the community after completion. Block Fest participants will be able to paint or collage one of the small canvases. As the small paintings are completed they will be added to the grid to reveal the whole of the Collective Community Visual Art Creation. 

SF Recovery Theatre will present its flagship jazz musical production, “Night at the Black Hawk”. This highlights the real time events that occurred during period the Black Hawk jazz club existed in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, while featuring the lives of the artist and residents that lived in shadow of this great icon. Night at the Black Hawk is a message of pride, propped up through arts and culture, to make a citywide exclamation on the neighborhood’s cultural assets and resilient community-oriented character.

Adults and children are welcome to participate! All supplies provided.
