Galeria de la Raza is pleased to present A Walk Along Cesar Chavez Street The Cesar Chavez East Community Design Plan as our first visual arts exhibit for 2012. This new exhibition, featuring mini scale models, video interviews, projections, photography, and blueprints, is the result of a service-learning course at the University of San Francisco conducted by artist Sergio De La Torre, entitled "Artist As Citizen: Documentary Practices." Over two semesters, USF students collaborated with the San Francisco Planning Department to develop projects that help them understand social and political issues around the city.

The Cesar Chavez East Community Design Plan details a community vision for an improved and imagined corridor between the Bayview and Mission neighborhoods, including transit design, economic growth, and neighborhood camaraderie. Join us as we explore the
ways in which simple connections can bring tremendous hope.

On February 22, the San Francisco Planning Department hosts a special night at Galeria in conjuction for current exhibition "A Walk Along Cesar Chavez Street." Representatives from the office as well as key players in the exhibition's collaboration with USF will sit down and discuss the visions in motion for plans set along the storied street of Cesar Chavez, as well as take questions and feedback from the public. Please join us to review designs for Cesar Chavez Street, from Hampshire Street to Illinois Street. The plan re-imagines Cesar Chavez East as a vital connector of the Mission, Bayview, Potrero, Bernal and Dogpatch neighborhoods, more safe, pleasant and convenient for people who live in, work in or travel through the area, and more responsive to ecological and cultural opportunities.
