Supes Approve Plaques

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved our plan to install bronze plaques at key historic locations around SoMa.

Learn more and see plaque design.

The proposal will be reviewed by the SF Arts Commission, this Monday, 4/19 at 2:00 p.m.  You can attend virtually to show support if you like: hearing info is here.

Further approvals may be required.  To help assure our success, consider signing up for our SOMA Action Network so we can let you know when we need your advocacy. 

Crosswalks and other Placemaking

We invite you to stop by Eagle Plaza to see the freshly-installed leather-themed crosswalks.

Additional dramatic black, blue, white and red crosswalks are planned for selected intersections as part of the Folsom Street upgrades, along with Cultural District signage and other decorative elements. Learn more here

Events, Events, Events

We are planning a NEW monthly, outdoor event in conjunction with Folsom Street Events!  We call it:

SOMA Second Saturdays!

Join us at Folsom and Dore, on May 8 and June 12 between noon and 5:00 p.m. for a safe and fun afternoon with a few kinky vendors and non-profits. 

Food and beverages served outdoors at Powerhouse! 

All SF masking and distancing requirements then in force will be followed.   

Interested in a vendor or exhibitor booth? Sign up here.

These other events are also in the works, if city regulations allow:

SOMA is coming back to life.  Be there!  (Be masked, socially distanced, and in limited numbers as per City guidelines... but be there!)

Mural Plans

The SOMA West CBD has asked our Cultural District to recommend a few local community personalities to be photographed for a series of large-format photo-murals, to be displayed on a prominent Folsom Street building. 

Suggest names of local, living, humans by email to arts-chair@sflcd.org.   

And watch for a new mural coming soon to the Oasis
