In collaboration with the Tenderloin Museum, Ramon’s Tailor Gallery presents a neighborhood Walking Tour & Artist Talk, inspired by the current art installation at Ramon’s Tailor by Paz de la Calzada, entitled Alhambra S.R.O. This one-night only event is an exciting exploration of the intersection of art, architecture, history, and diaspora.
Join the Tenderloin Museum on January 18th at 6:00 pm for the start of this unique experience. Pam Coates, the Tenderloin Museum’s resident historian, will give an insider’s view of the Tenderloin past and present with a special emphasis on the hidden neighborhood gems influenced by Moorish Architecture. The artist will be in attendance as we retrace her journey through the TL and share her discovery of a community full of arabic culture, mosques, restaurants, stores and buildings, including the stunning Alcazar Theater and an exclusive look inside the renowned Alhambra Apartments.
The one-hour tour leaves the Tenderloin Museum at 6:30 sharp and ends at Ramon’s Tailor Gallery where Paz will present her current work and discuss the installation. Participants will also have the opportunity to enjoy a gastronomical experience curated by the artist – a pastry combining multiple cultural influences and ingredients from Arabic cuisine, Paz’s home town in Spain, and a local Yemeni restaurant.
