This bench was until last week bolted at the top of Bernal Hill. It’s now missing… where did it go? Anyone know where it came from?
This is all that remains:

Between 17th and 18th Streets; Mission and Valencia
Celebrating Culture and Community Like Gentrification Never Happened!

“…For the uninitiated, Clarion Alley meanders for one block from Mission Street to Valencia Street between 17th and 18th Streets. But it’s not your normal alley; it’s solid murals from start to finish, the large majority painted by a bevy of our best local artists. So once a year there’s this block party where everybody comes to see new murals, listen to live music, drink beer, honk weed, skateboard, congregate, loiter, convene, saunter, stroll, carouse, stare at everybody else…”
Sad times for grass in SF:
The bigger picture here is about the legacy we want to leave to current and future generations of San Francisco youth and residents. We are a city proud of our leadership on environmental issues and our rich heritage of natural beauty in an urban setting. Do we really want to leave plastic and rubber tire-waste fields where once we found natural grass and urban ecosystems?
Long-time Western Addition community activist Arnold Townsend is opposed to astroturf. “When kids go to park they ought to get dirty. You don’t find bugs on astroturf. Kids don’t learn about ecosystems on astroturf. No matter how much ball you play on it, it’s an unnatural setting,” he said.

Where: Adobe Books Back gallery
Curated by Devon Bella
Adobe Books Backroom Gallery presents Bookish, the inaugural exhibition celebrating the Backroom Gallery’s recent renovation and exciting transformation. To mark this special occasion, and to call attention to the position of the gallery within the context of the famed Adobe Bookshop, the exhibition will feature a range of artistic practices that share the book as an object of inquiry. Through various media including sculpture, painting, photography and social practice, each artist will animate varying questions based on our relationships to books.
