Art in Action: Celebrating Women Artists of San Francisco Past and Present

Event detail
In celebration of Women’s History month, the Art and Music Center has a panoply of events, exhibits and social media happening in March. To celebrate the contribution of women artists, both past and present, we will host a different local street artist creating her art every Friday in March from 1-3 pm. All of the artists participate in the San Francisco Art Commission Street Artist Licensing Program.

This Friday, March 7, Kathy Hallinan will present her leathercraft.  On March 14, Mara Murray present her hand-made fabric crafts. Jenifer Martinez and her partner Stan Chiao will present their t-shirt art. On March 28, Simone Guimaraes will present her multimedia work which uses upcycled material.

Each of these presentations will be held in the Steve Silver Beach Blanket Babylon Center on the 4th floor of the Main Library.

The Steve Silver Room will also display an exhibit of photographs from the San Francisco History Room's Historical Photograph Collection featuring women artists working at the 1940 Golden Gate international Exposition.

Also, the Art and Music Center will be posting Art of the Walk: An Instagram Tour of Art by Women in San Francisco, featuring a different artist and work every day in March.
