Tenderloin Arts Lending Library

Tenderloin Arts Lending Library

The Tenderloin Art Lending Library (TALL) is a queer-artist-run project that lends artwork to Tenderloin community members free-of-charge. TALL is a trust-based program where artists—the majority of whom are homeless, formerly homeless, and live or work in the Tenderloin—donate artwork that is available for loan to any member of the Tenderloin community free-of-charge.

TALL is predicated on the belief that Tenderloin residents deserve to appreciate all forms of visual arts expression. In CounterPulse’s spirit of accessibility, TALL provides this opportunity.

How it works:

Come to CounterPulse the second Tuesday of each month between 12pm-2pm

To borrow artwork from TALL, we’ll need:

  • A photo ID
  • Proof of residence
  • A reliable way to contact you

You may borrow a piece of framed original artwork and keep in your home for one month. Return the artwork at the end of the month and you may borrow another piece.

For more info contact Associate Director of Neighborhood Arts, Rick Darnell at (415) 626-2060 or rick@counterpulse.org

    This is a great opportunity to experience the luxury of original artwork in your own home.

    It’s a great time for artists or collectors to donate art to the TALL collection

    It’s also a great time for folks with picture framing skills to adopt a piece from the TALL collection to frame.

    Contact TALL Project Coordinator and Founder Rick Darnell email: rick@counterpulse.org. THANK YOU!
