Submitted by the Event Organizer
Chinatown will come alive for the Art in Storefronts launch celebration, which features an art walk, live music by Diskarte Namin and light refreshments provided by local restaurants Z&Y, Four Seas and Charles Phan of the Slanted Door, as well as tea tastings provided by Vital Tea Leaf.
Art in Storefronts temporarily places original art installations and murals by San Francisco-based artists into a total of four vacant storefront windows and two walls located in Chinatown. This inventive citywide project engages local artists and reinvigorates neighborhoods that have been hard-hit by the economic downturn. It also provides artists – who have also been affected by the slow economy – with a unique opportunity to showcase their creativity in transforming vacant storefronts into free exhibition spaces and to garner public recognition for their work.
*Special media tours and interviews with participating artists will be scheduled throughout the afternoon upon request.
Formal remarks will begin at 5:30pm, followed by an unveiling of the window installations and art walk with the artists.
