Join SPUR's Young Urbanists for this special evening tour.

Amy Ress of Public Architecture and Judy Nemzoff from the San Francisco Arts Commission will lead a lively happy hour at Showdogs, followed by a walk through the burgeoning cultural arts district of Central Market Street. On foot, we will stop by Lights on Market Street, three large-scale site-specific installations by artists Jim Campbell, Paul Notzold, and Theo Watson. The tour will continue with exploration of Art in Storefronts--art installations by San Francisco artists that bring vitality to vacant and under-used storefront windows. Have these and other arts-efforts made an impact on the revitalization of this challenged stretch of Market Street? The group will meet with arts-community and neighborhood stakeholders and to discuss the opportunities and challenges of organizing public art. This event is generously sponsored by the Koret Foundation.
