Paige and Mona discuss their Brush with the Tenderloin

Mona Caron’s “Windows Into The Tenderloin” is one of the most wondrous and meaningful pieces of art I’ve ever seen. I went to the Tenderloin Museum where Caron discussed the immersive process of creating the mural with Paige Bierma, who created a short film about it. The film is beautiful and pulls all the heart strings, watch it now!  

I was particularly interested in learning more about the Tenderloin murals as I am in the process of setting up several Where Art Lives classes in the neighborhood. Students in these classes will imagine the murals they would like to place in the neighborhood.

Her approach to a collective visioning of a realistic Utopia, made me think of Steve Lamberts speech on the topic:
