2 Blocks of Art


Friday, October 14
4–8 p.m.
Various Locations on Sixth Street between Market and Howard

Urban Solutions’ 2 Blocks of Art takes place on Sixth Street between Market and Howard. The art walk showcases a neighborhood rich in culture and well known for its cutting edge arts community. The event draws a record number of people to the Sixth Street corridor; features, like musicians playing in a Laundromat and a fashion designer exhibiting in an optometry office, make this event truly unique!

2 Blocks of Art is book-ended by well-known Luggage Store gallery at one end, and 1st Amendment gallery (1AM) at the other. Approximately 50 artists exhibit in 25 locations – all within 2 blocks!

Artists will be featured in galleries, retail shops, restaurants, theaters and event spaces along the first two blocks of Sixth Street. The art walk is FREE and no purchase is required for viewing the shows! The restaurants, bars, nightclubs and theaters along Sixth Street will offer discounted food, drinks and admission prices to after-party events for art walk participants.

I’ll be exhibiting some of my photography—all of it for sale—at the offices of Dr. Jack Sinow, Optometrist (who incidentally is my own optometrist), 71 Sixth Street, next to the Sonoma Market. I hope to see you there!

“Hunter’s Point”


On the toxic edge of San Francisco, a homeless singer seeks refuge from psych wards and social workers as her errant sister closes in. Ruthie, an extreme travel writer, hires  a beat-boxing street musician and bike thief named Hunter to find her sister Eva, while  avoiding love and responsibility in her own life. A play with music and bicycles about fierce outsiders, the complicated love of sisters, and the meaning of home.

**Funded by Walter and Elise Haas Fund, Zellerbach Family Foundation, Stanley S. Langendorf Foundation, Puffin Foundation, Theatre Bay Area CA$H grant program, and the University of San Francisco; with participation of the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District.

Please come early to take in the lobby art installation and be sure to leave comments in the ledger. I value your feedback!

I hope to see you at one of the shows.
