The Village Artist Corner features rotating murals and monthly programs at the dragon sculpture on the corner of Fulton and Larkin Streets adjacent to the Asian Art Museum. Artist Cece Carpio takes over the Village Artist Corner this summer to radiate the themes of the exhibition Divine Bodies into the community surrounding the museum. Divine Bodies asks us to look for the divine in the human, and Carpio has found it in women living and working in the Tenderloin. With a series of painted portraits paired with their stories captured on video about the participants and their lives, Carpio shines a light on those who are needed to be seen.
The Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Public Library present the Village Artist Corner, a public art initiative featuring art for social change. Cece Carpio’s “Every Face Has a Story” is a 30-foot-long mural depicting Asian Pacific Islander women who live and work in the Tenderloin.
