Mid-Market art walk

From SPUR:

Join SPUR’s Young Urbanists for this special evening tour. Amy Ress of Public Architecture and Judy Nemzoff from the San Francisco Arts Commission will lead a lively happy hour at Showdogs, followed by a walk through the burgeoning cultural arts district of Central Market Street. On foot, we will stop by Lights on Market Street, three large-scale site-specific installations by artists Jim Campbell, Paul Notzold and Theo Watson. The tour will continue with exploration of Art in Storefronts — art installations by San Francisco artists that bring vitality to vacant and under-used storefront windows. Have these and other arts efforts made an impact on the revitalization of this challenged stretch of Market Street? The group will meet with arts-community and neighborhood stakeholders to discuss the opportunities and challenges of organizing public art. This event is generously sponsored by the Koret Foundation.

Happy hour: 7 p.m. Showdogs (1020 Market Street) This portion of the event is open to members and non-members. There is no need to RSVP.

Tour: 8 – 9 p.m. You must RSVP for this portion (free for members, $20 for non-members). Space is limited, so please register only if you are able to attend.
