Description

Clare Rojas, the 509 Cultural Center, and others involved in shaping a Mid-Market Arts District in San Francisco will collaborate on the creation, development, and installation of a large-scale temporary public mural on the five-story Warfield Building. The finished work will be visible to Market Street motorists, mass transit riders, and pedestrians. Clare Rojas has exhibited her work locally and nationally, with recent shows including exhibitions at the Cincinnati Center for Contemporary Art and at the Belkin Satellite at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. The 509 Cultural Center has been located in the Tenderloin since 1987. Co-directors Laurie Lazar and Darryl Smith opened the Luggage Store Gallery at Sixth and Market streets in 1990. In addition to presenting exhibits, performances, and literary events in the gallery, they manage the outdoor Tenderloin National Forest.
