Hobos to Street People: Artists’ Responses to Homelessness from the New Deal to the Present
By Art Hazelwood, Tim Drescher and Jos Sances
Exhibition and Mural Tour
California Historical Society Exhibition with Art Hazelwood, followed by a tour of history sites. The exhibition focuses on the artwork created in response to the unprecedented poverty of the Great Depression and is mirrored by contemporary artwork that looks squarely at the economic wasteland that has resulted from the last thirty years of capitalism.
The mural tour will include the Rincon Annex murals by Anton Refregier, the ILWU memorial nearby and the Arnett Watson mural in the Tenderloin. Transportation from the California Historical Society to other sites on your own (walking, bicycling or city buses will easily suffice).
