I am proud to announce that for the month of August 2017, I will be the official Artist in Residence at Coit Tower here in San Francisco. The artwork produced will be screen printed and displayed at the brand new Haight Street Art Center, which celebrates its grand opening this Saturday. More details soon. I still love you very much San Francisco, see you in August on Telegraph Hill.
Coit Tower, also known as the Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, is a 210-foot (64 m) tower in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The tower, in the city’s Pioneer Park, was built in 1933 using Lillie Hitchcock Coit‘s bequest to beautify the city of San Francisco; at her death in 1929 Coit left one-third of her estate to the city for civic beautification. The tower was proposed in 1931 as an appropriate use of Coit’s gift. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 29, 2008.
