Walking Tour of Stencil Sites - Oct 4

Syndicate, a collaborative project celebrating unionized workers in San Francisco performance and art spaces, has been included as part of the GroundScores component of Bay Area Now 5, showing at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts from 7/19/08-10/13/08. The walking tour features street stencils of historic photographs in front of theatres and museums starting downtown at YBCA and SFMOMA and then continuing to civic center (Asian Art Museum, Bill Graham Civic, Davies Symphony Hall, the Opera House and the Herbst Theatre). Some of the stencils are also shown in the gallery exhibition, which also includes a video by Jessica Tully (video/stencils/performance artist) along with text by Kim and photography by Tom Griscom & Wendy Crittenden. The guided tour will be led by Kim, Jessica, Catherine Powell (from the SFSU Labor Archives, another collaborator), Valerie Imus (GroundScores curator) and other guests from noon to 2:30 on Sat, 10/4.

Because of the Love Fest parade on Market Street and Civic Center, and the possibility of driving rain on Saturday, we may be forced to postpone this tour. If you plan to come, please e-mail Kim at kim_munson (at) or call YBCA at 415.978.2787 to check for current information. Click here to see more images and information on YBCA's web site.

Kim, Tom & Wendy will be presenting at SFSU on this topic on the evening of 10/20.
