Art in Storefronts San Francisco

Art in Storefronts logoSan Francisco's Art in Storefronts program - a collaboration between city agencies, community organisations and the business community - engages San Francisco-based artists to reinvigorate neighborhoods that have been affected by the economic downturn. The program has been temporarily placing original art installations by local artists in vacant and under-used storefront windows and exterior walls since 2009.

Robynn Takayama, Manager, Community Arts and  Education with the San Francisco Arts Commission talked to Lisa Andersen in October 2011 about a program that has economic development, community regeneration and involvement, and really great art at its core.
