Life is strange.  This week nurses across the nation, including many cities in the Bay Are, had to hold protests demanding they be provided the proper safety equipment and staffing they need to continue saving lives.

As the pandemic continues, and we shelter in place.  It’s important that we support our front line workers everyday, even in small ways.  And SF artists are doing something nice to thank them.  The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) teamed up with 10 SF artists for a poster series thanking healthcare workers.  The new works will line Market st from the Embarcadero to the Castro.

The SFAC wrote this about the project:  “This love letter from the arts community has two components. Forty kiosk posters will line Market Street from the Embarcadero to the Castro, reminding residents and visitors that every day remarkable people in our community are caring for those that are sick with the coronavirus.  Smaller reproductions of the kiosk posters will be distributed to San Francisco-based hospitals and quarantine sites, to be posted in various communal spaces as well as for the healthcare workers to take home as tokens of gratitude.”

You can see them all along Market street now, and they will remain up on kiosks for the next three months.  Check out the digital versions bellow, and if you like the posters let the artists know! Their names link to their personal sites.
