The old San Francisco Barber College is one of the many venues that was opened and displayed work done by local artists on Friday, October 10 for the 2 Blocks of Art walk on 6th Street in San Francisco.
Inks of Truth, a collective of artists and photographers, rented this location for the day to display their group’s work. “This will be our second time in the San Francisco Barber College location for this event, which I’m really pleased about this spot, I just wish the barber chairs were still in here like they were last time we showed our work in this space,” Reynaldo R. Cayetano Jr. said.
2 Blocks of Art is an annual event that takes place on the first two blocks of 6th Street from Market Street to Howard Street. The art walk started in 2011 and is organized to help promote local artists, boost the economy of small local businesses in the area, and help reinforce the central Market area of San Francisco as a arts and culture destination. The event coordinators also hope to help promote civic pride among the residents of this neighborhood.
