The Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the San Francisco Arts Commission, and Triple Base Gallery sponsored the Art in Storefronts program Over 30 artists were selected and commissioned to create inventive art installations throughout four neighborhoods in San Francisco. Art in Storefronts was a pilot project that was part of the Mayor’s initiative to reinvigorate San Francisco neighborhoods and commercial corridors and I was the lead curator to develop this project.
The intention of the AIS was to instill community pride, support local merchants, improve streetscape conditions and safety, revitalize the property’s appearance, increase foot traffic, and support local San Francisco artists. AIS was a celebration of the role that the arts play in community-building and economic growth. 2009
