Exhibit Opening: “A Walk Along Cesar Chavez Street (The Cesar Chavez East Community Design Plan)”
“A Walk Along Cesar Chavez Street (The Cesar Chavez East Community Design Plan)” is the result of a Service Learning Class conducted by artist Sergio De La Torre, entitled ARTIST AS CITIZEN: DOCUMENTARY PRACTICES. In this class, students from the University of San Francisco work together with a local non-profit and develop projects that help them understand social and political issues around the city. Working with the San Francisco Planning Department, the Cesar Chavez East Community Design Plan details a community vision for an improved and imagined corridor between the Bayview and Mission neighborhoods, including transit design, economic growth, and neighborhood camaraderie. Join us as we explore the ways in which simple connections can bring tremendous hope.
