Meanwhile in San Francisco

Image by Wendy MacNaughton

Pulled from artist and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton's most recent book, Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in It's Own Words, SPUR's latest exhibition features beautiful illustrations that form a collaborative narrative: the drawings are hers, but the words came from people living and working in San Francisco. To create each of these stories, Wendy spent anywhere from twenty-four hours to four weeks getting to know the place, the​ people and their histories through conversation and observation, all the while drawing everything she noticed. 

Join us for our latest exhibition and take an illustrated glance into just a handful of San Francisco communities that can be witnessed in day to day life, on every steep street, behind every gated door and in every grassy park.
