Murals of the Tenderloin

On September 29th, join us and three amazing local women artists for 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 a walking tour, a short film screening, a brief slideshow, and Q&A. 

Tenderloin artist Lucca Raventinkie will start the evening leading a neighborhood mural tour, which will begin at 6:15 sharp at the Tenderloin Museum, and end 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.

All three artists will take questions at an informal conversation afterwards.

Admission: $10 (Includes tour & programming)
