The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are the city’s museums. As part of our initiative to welcome all San Francisco residents to the museums free on Saturdays, we will provide free unique museum experiences celebrating the city we love.
Join us in the Piazonni Murals Room as Hunter Franks presents a storytelling exchange activity, The Neighborhood Postcard Project, that collects personal positive stories from underrepresented communities and mails them to random people in different neighborhoods within the same city to break down stereotypes and catalyze connections.
Hunter Franks creates art that intervenes in the social and physical landscape of our urban environments. His participatory installations in public space break down barriers and help us reimagine our relationships with each other, our neighborhoods, and our cities. Projects include a 500-person dinner on a freeway, a storytelling exchange to connect disparate neighborhoods, a public display of first love stories, and a vacant warehouse turned community hub. His Neighborhood Postcard Project has been carried out in 23 communities and his League of Creative Interventionists has chapters in cities around the world. In 2011, he walked from Los Angeles to New Mexico — an experience that continues to fuel his desire to tell the stories of underrepresented people and places. He currently resides in San Francisco.
