Meanwhile in San Francisco

6:00 p.m. | Tuesday, August 19, 2014

In illustrator and graphic journalist Wendy MacNaughton's book, Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City In It's Own Words, beautiful watercolor illustrations form a collaborative narrative: the drawings are hers, but the accompanying words come from the people living and working in San Francisco. 
Join us for SPUR's latest exhibition: a  pictorial excursion into the communities that can be witnessed in the day-to-day life of every steep hill, grassy park and MUNI journey. McNaughton's drawings reveal just what makes San Francisco the effervescent city that it is.
Opening reception — August 19, 2014, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.


The Urban Leaders Council is for those individuals who provide core support for the work that SPUR does. Those who have made life estate gifts and significant donations to the SPUR Campaign for the Urban Center and SPUR Benefactors are also invited to join the Urban Leaders Council.
