Join us for a walking tour to explore the ever-changing landscape of murals in the Tenderloin!
The walk will weave through the heart of the neighborhood, surveying a range of new works and highlighting some of the TL’s historic legacy murals, featuring site-specific dance activations and the premiere of Dawn Leigh’s mobile mural tribute to the Night Hawk Jazz Club.
The Tenderloin’s most prolific muralist Sylvester “Slick” Guard Jr. will be present to feature his work at CounterPulse, GLIDE, and the future home of Yemen Kitchen. Other highlights include visits to several of the iconic Luggage Store murals made by Alicia McCarthy, Tauba Auerbach, Chad Hasegawa et. al. as well as newer work by Harumo Sato, Spencer Keaton Cunningham, and the recently completed tribute to beloved artist and SFAI professor Carlos Villa by Mario Ayala.
We’ll kick off at CounterPulse (80 Turk St) at 1pm before beginning the tour. Kick-off event at CP is free!
