Behind the scenes of “Everyone Deserves a Home” community mural

We wanted to share some behind the 1AM scenes shots of this epic street art mural.   This mural, overlooking the recently revamped Boedekker Park, brings new life and vibrancy to the Tenderloin community. This project was made possible and in collaboration with DISH, Friends of Boeddeker Park, and the Community Challenge Grant Program by SF Beautiful.  For more info, contact murals@1amsf.com Original Sketch

An Interview with Zekwer

In honor of his show here 1AM, we thought it would be a great idea to interview Zekwer and get to know more about him, his Alphabetism series, and the street art scene as a French artist.

The corner was previously a dull, beige color, that didn't have any visual indication of children or learning inside--sometimes creating [...]
