Check Out SF’s Pop-Up Cultural History Museum
In the near future there will be a brand new museum in town called the San Francisco Cultural History Museum. Given the name, you can probably ascertain that it’s a museum dedicated the cultural history of San Francisco…Duh.
While there’s no set date on when it will open its door, this weekend in Kerouac Alley in North Beach, they are throwing a really rad FREE two day pop-up event called Streets of San Francisco.
Here’s all the info:
Please join The San Francisco Cultural History Museum as we celebrate decades of creativity, and examine generations of strife, as lived out of doors in one of the world’s great cities. Streets of San Francisco will bring objects and artifacts from our permanent collection into the wild over the weekend of June 29th and 30th, when we transform Kerouac Alley into a pop-up exhibition and performance space.
This free event will feature readers and speakers, musicians and dancers, artists and photographers, as well as just everyday people, sharing their experiences about the highs and lows of San Francisco street culture. Relics on display will include protest signs, motorcycle club paraphernalia, Carnival costumes, punk rock handbills, and even the original ‘Automatic Human Jukebox’. It will be a bona-fide “happening”. It will intrigue and educate. It will be historic.
