SAN FRANCISCO– (CANCELLED) Shaping San Francisco Public Talk: Art & Politics—Mona Caron and Kiernan Graves

November 29, 2017 @ 11:30 am1:30 pm


SAN FRANCISCO– In summer 2017 an ambitious project was begun to restore and extend the life of Mona Caron‘s Market Street Railway Mural at 15th and Church Streets. When it was painted in 2003-04, it quickly became a beloved piece of public art, and uniquely presented a complicated historical narrative of Market Street, its uses over time (including a vision of its future!), and the long presence of streetcars on it. After more than a decade, the wall’s surfaces were beginning to crack and buckle, and along came Kiernan Graves, an accomplished conservator, who offered to fix the understory with the skills she’d previously applied to historic Indian palaces and other sites. As part of Shaping San Francisco’s Free Public Talks Series, Mona and Kiernan join us in discussion, where the art, the history, the process, all will be revealed!

At the Eric Quezada Center for Culture & Politics, 518 Valencia Street (at 16th), San Francisco CA 94110, wheelchair accessible.
