“Where’s Itsy Bitsy Spider?” in the Excelsior

This past weekend was the annual “Jerry Day” concert at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in San Francisco’s McLaren Park, followed by the Excelsior Neighborhood Art Walk. “Muni Meltdown” a scene from my book “Wheres Itsy Bitsy Spider?” was on display in the window of local business Dragon House MMA as part of the Excelsior Arts Initiative (EAI). EAI is a public art project presented by ArtSpan and The Excelsior Action Group to reinvigorate the commercial corridor of the Excelsior District. My work is one of 12 stunning installations you can visit through November 2022.

Here are some photos from the day, including some professional shots of the artwork being installed, taken by photographer Jason Martineau.

Artspan’s Excelsior Art Initiative uses ​​art as a vehicle for community engagement to create pathways for engagement during their transition to their new headquarters in the area.
