Community event starts in Bayview Friday

The second installment of the Arts in Storefronts pilot program starts Friday in the Bayview district, city officials said.

Vacated storefronts will morph from failed businesses into art exhibits. The work of San Francisco-based artists will be on display.

The idea is billed by city officials as a creative way to inject vibrancy into neighborhoods hit hard by the downward economy.

The project is a citywide effort, having kicked off last Friday in the Mid-Market and Tenderloin districts.

The Bayview launch event will kick off at 4900 Third St. with a community celebration featuring remarks by District 10 Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, an art walk, jazz by youth group Pop Lyfe and the unveiling of four storefront windows, the Arts Commission said.

The event runs from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The program will next roll out on lower 24th Street in the Mission district on Nov. 20. All installations will remain on view through the end of January 2010.
