  • Art/Lit LIZ Launch Party

    For Families, and part of Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone: Program Activations, Thursday Nights

    Jun 15

    Free

    5—8 PM

    Corner of Fulton and Larkin streets

    Join hundreds of revelers, artists, and civic leaders from City Hall for an afternoon-and-into-the-evening block party to celebrate the launch of the Asian Art Museum and Main Library’s Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone (LIZ), a new work of public sculpture on the corner of Fulton and Larkin Streets adjacent to the museum.  

    Meet acclaimed Mission-district street artist and activist Megan Wilson and her creative partner, poet-laureate of El Cerrito Maw Shein Win, as Megan unveils her original mural on the LIZ sculpture and performs a “Flower Interruption” outside the museum. Then groove to live performances by celebrated jazz musician Aireene Espirtu and taiko drummers, enjoy delicious eats from SOMA StrEat food trucks, sip drinks from Tres Truck, and unleash your inner artist by painting with water on a GIANT “Buddha board” wall. Afterwards, shimmy inside the Asian Art museum to enjoy its priceless collection for only $10 after 5PM!
