Market Street Art In Transit Poster Series - Tagolog (2002)
San Francisco, CA.


Building on the Better Homes and Gardens project, I designed six posters in 2002 for the San Francisco Art Commission's Market Street Art in Transit Project. The posters displayed the word for "Home" in six different languages that reflect those predominantly spoken in the South of Market, Tenderloin, financial and Civic Center districts: Tagalog, Vietnamese, English, Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic.

Every year four artists are selected to create six designs (four posters each for a total of 24 posters) that are displayed in the triangular kiosks located on Market Street between Embarcadero and Van Ness Avenue. The kiosk poster series provides an opportunity for artists to reach audiences outside of traditional art venues such as galleries and museums.

Other Projects I have done that relate to this work include:
Home-Casa
