Join us for our encore event- Murals of the
Tenderloin, an exploration of some of the greatest murals of the
Tenderloin neighborhood, with a special focus on the unusually detailed
and story-packed mural “Windows into the Tenderloin” by Mona Caron, at
Jones and Golden Gate.
The evening will comprise of an *optional* Neighborhood Walking Tour, a short film screening, a brief slideshow, and Q&A.
Billy Priest, one of our resident Tenderloin historians, will start the evening leading a Neighborhood Walking Tour with a mural focus, leaving from the Tenderloin Museum at 6pm sharp, and ending at the same place at 7pm.
At 7:15, documentary filmmaker Paige Bierma will present her Emmy award winning short film “A Bush with the Tenderloin” (20 min), aired on KQED’s Truly California, which chronicles the creation of Mona Caron’s "Windows into the Tenderloin”.
Lastly, the muralist of "Windows Into The Tenderloin" herself, Mona Caron, will present a brief slideshow detailing the artistic and community process that generated the storytelling content of the mural, and tell stories.
Mona Caron and Paige Bierma will take questions at an informal conversation afterwards.
