We're happy to appear at street fairs, festivals, and other community events to show old photos of the neighborhood, give out free booklets, and chat with people about west SF history.
Nicole Meldahl, Chelsea Sellin, and David Gallagher in conversation with local historians, artists, longtime west side residents, and other surprise guests, chatting about a variety of historical subjects. Audience members are encouraged to participate via chat and, of course, bring their beverage of choice.
This week we sit down with local artist Thomas Beutel, who has used our OpenSFHistory archive in ways we never could have imagined! Thomas, a longtime resident of the Sunset District, tinkers with urban art which are kinetic miniatures and automata that incorporate movement and sound. He takes his inspiration from his neighborhood, local history and the natural fauna of the area.
This event is free but donations are appreciated and pre-registration is required.
A Zoom link will be emailed to you after registration. If you don't receive it immediately, please let us know.
Sponsored by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Program courtesy of District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer.
There will be performances and several cultural organizations engaging the community with the power of history through activities and crafts.
CHSA will showcase "Chinese in the Sunset," a traveling exhibition and collaboration between Western Neighborhoods Project and CHSA. At this year's event we will be the launching of a new collaborative project called "Chinese in the Richmond."
