Tenderloin dwellers take pride in their eclectic, cultured and historical neighborhood of San Francisco. White Walls and The Shooting Gallery are no different, and our involvement in the community backs our feelings toward our lovely TL home.
From October 17-November 15, 2009, an entire program of arts related events in the Tenderloin will be hosted by Wonderland (an SF non-profit). All events are free to the community, calling on 74 artists to create 16 projects throughout the neighborhood. White Walls is getting in on the action with a stencil workshop and street art lecture on November 7th, details below:
Saturday, November 7th 2009
White Walls Gallery
835 Larkin St. San Francisco CA 94109
Stencil Workshop 3:00 pm-4:00pm
Street Art Lecture 4:00-5:30
Stencil Workshop From 3-4pm, Myrtle Alley will become the site of an impromptu mural project. A giant wooden panel will be installed in the alley, and we invite artists of all capacities to make their mark. All spray paint will be provided by Montana and participants are welcome to bring their own stencils, tee shirts to stencil onto, etc. This workshop is meant to bring together experienced spray can artists with those who are curious about the art form, whether they have tried it or not. It will be a fun, laid back event where artists and the community will have a chance to dialogue about spray can art.
Street Art Lecture After the workshop, a talk will be led by the local graffiti artists Apex, Vulcan, and Neonski. They will discuss the evolution of their signature “Super Burner” murals, which are known for being layered with 500 or more colors. (For more about these artists, see Juxtapoz) Get a glimpse of their styles below:
