“Way Out West” Launch Party

July 7 – August 17, 2014





Thursday, July 17, The Art City Project hosts a reception at Heron Arts for “Way Out West,” a new public art exhibition. Curated by Tova Lobatz and Jenny Sharaf, the exhibition fills spaces typically occupied by advertisements with artwork, reconfiguring billboards, transit shelters, the sides of buses, and more. This public exhibition, the first for The Art City Project, responds to the rapid physical and social developments taking place in San Francisco’s inner Mission district by allowing artists to occupy high-visibility space in the transitional landscape. “Way Out West” is a timely celebration of California as a place of dreams, innovation, and change.


The Art City Project hosts a launch party Thursday, July 17 at Heron Arts, where the original artwork for the project will be on view, along with limited edition prints from Magnolia Editions. Complimentary refreshments will be provided by Espolon Tequila, and local DJs will perform throughout the evening.
