Thanks to Hoodline for letting us know about the Tenderloin’s “Pothole Artist”’s most ambitious project yet.

In the streets of the Tenderloin, you might notice something peculiar about its potholes, which contain anything from lipstick, glitter, clip-on-earrings, broken disco balls, rainbow Skittles and neon blue bubbles.

That’s because local artist Rik Lee Leipold has been filling in these urban “blights” with resin, among vibrant personal objects associated with the neighborhood’s beloved—and defunct—LGBTQ dive bars.

Now, Leipold is collaborating with Bay Area artists Diego Gomez and Donna Personna for his new series of potholes, “Resin in Pavement,” which has taken on poignant new meaning.

LGBT Pothole Art Walking Tour
This Saturday, join Leipold and the Tenderloin Museum for a socially-distant “Resin in Pavement” Walking Tour which visits each pothole and celebrates the neighborhood’s beloved LGBTQ spaces and the enduring legacies they leave behind.

  • Saturday, September 5, 2020 | Noon to 1:30pm
  • Meet at Tenderloin Museum, 398 Eddy Street, SF
  • Tickets are $10 (limited availablity) – if sold out they say they plan future tours.
