And when you’re in the area, always check to see what’s hanging from 1269 McAllister near Steiner – it changes regularly. A sample is below.

And here’s another link: It’s Audio Manifestations, baby:

“Audio Manifestations records the hidden narratives of artists in the Western Addition/Fillmore district in San Francisco, and shares these stories with the wider neighborhood. By creating multi-media stories focusing on our neighborhood’s artists, the project illuminates the passions and talents that have emerged from our local streets. 

Audio Manifestations will culminate in a community listening event that aims to create empathy, solidarity, and engagement by sharing artists’ experiences, and celebrating their commitment to making an impact on our blocks. 

We invite local artists, musicians, radio documentations, and neighbors to submit any sound or audio art that will be featured during the listening party. Reach out to voicesfromthestreet@gmail.com and join in.”

OK then.

A cry for help from a frequent flier?

Wasn’t there to see it but this was the scene on Fulton Street at the African American Art & Culture Complex yesterday.

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi and the AAACC crew with a large check from AT&T:

All the deets:

“AT&T GIVES $50,000 FOR YOUTH ARTS PROGRAMMING AT THE AFRICAN AMERICAN ART & CULTURE COMPLEX

SAN FRANCISCO – On December 9, 2010, AT&T will present the African American Art & Culture Complex (AAACC) with a $50,000 contribution to support its free arts programming for youth primarily residing in San Francisco’s Western Addition Community.  The contribution will fund the “Youth Program Improvement and Capacity Expansion Initiative” that includes computer software upgrades, equipment enhancement, and the attainment and retention of quality instructors.  There will be a small ceremony at the African American Art & Culture Complex, 762 Fulton Street, on December 9th at 12:30pm.

“I am truly excited that AT&T is honoring the African American Art & Culture Complex with this contribution. This institution serves not just as an arts space, but a safe space for youth in the Western Addition community, to express their artistic talents through visual and performing arts,” said Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi.

The Youth Program Improvement and Capacity Expansion Initiative will enhance art and technology classes in the recording studio including audio engineering, film production and graphic art.  The classes will serve youth in the general after school program for ages 7-12 and a specialized teen program for ages 14-18.

“At AT&T, we are committed to making a real difference in the communities where we live and work, especially by supporting innovative programs that inspire and enrich the community as a whole,” said Tedi Vriheas, AT&T External Affairs Manager.  “That’s why we’re proud to salute the African American Art & Culture Complex and the great work they are doing to provide art and cultural programming that enriches the Western Addition and entire San Francisco community.”

“With the loss of visual and performing arts classes in our public schools, it is more important than ever that we provide other opportunities for children to experience the arts and we want to thank AT&T for recognizing the importance of the arts in the lives of children,” said AAACC Board President Naomi Kelly.
