Friday, July 6, 6–9pm, join SOMArts Cultural Center for the opening reception for the Performing Community exhibition, which explores creative placemaking in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood, SOMA. Youth from the San Francisco Rock Project will perform at 7pm, and an introduction by exhibition curators Kara Q. Smith and Laura Poppiti will follow.

About Performing Community:
July 6–28, SOMArts Cultural Center invites you to explore the diverse communities, thriving creative pockets, and hidden histories of SOMA through the gallery exhibition and events accompanying Performing Community. New projects by exhibiting artists Susan Greene, Marlon Sagana Ingram (MSI), Kitsch House, Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) and Network of Daily Experience (NODE) present the various histories of SOMA and invite community contributions to ever-developing narratives through interactive installations and creative projects which answer the question: how is community built and practiced?

For gallery hours and information about free to attend events such as a SOMA walking tour, neighborhood bar hop, and community archive workshop, visit http://www.somarts.org/performingcommunity.
