As some of you know, November features an exciting exhibition by SOMArts resident artist/curator Julie Michelle of I Live Here:SF.  It is exciting not only because of the high caliber of the photography, video, and installation work featured in the show, but also because it is the first ever Commons Curatorial Residency that we have awarded here at SOMArts Cultural Center.  With this award Julie Michelle has composed an exhibition that shares the spirit and fascinating layers of this city through the words and faces of those who live here.  This ongoing, community-based photography and creative writing project investigates the myriad cultural and personal noooks and crannies of San Francisco as well as the lovely, lively, kooky, exiting, and entertaining inhabitants therein.

It has already received lots of attention, being featured or listed at: The Bold Italic, SF Station, SF Fun Cheap, Flavorpill, SFist, Fecal Face, Muni Diaries, SFBG, SF Weekly, SF Gate, 7×7, and more.

Don’t miss this great show coming up from the 5th to the 30th of November with the opening reception on the 5th from 6:00-9:00 pm.  Featured artists include Julie Michelle, Chris Rusak, and Rick Prelinger.  Exhibition sponsors include Dickerman Prints, Wizdom on Wheels, Muni Diaries, Rebuilding Together, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, San Francisco Department of Public Works, and Clear Channel Outdoor.
