Fwd: Wonderland brightens Tenderloin, artists' spirit

This just in! In today's Sunday edition of the San Francisco Chronicle in the Bay Area section, Wonderland was featured on the front page. Follow the link below for the whole story!

"San Franciscans have an endless supply of museums, galleries and exhibit space to visit when they need their art fix. But over the past few weeks, some of the city's most eye-catching, conversation-sparking art has been available free of charge and in perhaps the city's unlikeliest space: the streets of the Tenderloin."

Keeps an eye on Wonderland's progress!!


7x7 blog article!!

Welcome toWonderland, a month-long, multi-site art exhibition in the Tenderloin. Curated by Bay Area native Lance Fung, this project is the result of a collaborative effort between the neighborhood's residents, nonprofits and city organizations like the North of Market Community Benefit District and groundbreaking local, national and international artist teams. More than just an art exhibit, this project is a platform for social engagement in true grass-roots fashion. Make no mistake—Lance states very clearly that the Wonderland Project is no attempt to gentrify a vital SF neighborhood. It's simply, in the vein of all his work, a chance to stimulate the existing community from the ground up. Without further ado, a few words about the project by Lance Fung himself.
