Grace Alley Mural Vandalized: a letter from our director Carol Queen

Help needed Monday, April 1st at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco! We need painters and volunteers to restore the Grace Alley Mural.

Center for Sex and Culture 1349 Mission St. (between 9th and 10th) San Francisco, CA 94103

Lovely people! We need your help.

Our entire building has been attacked by mural-bombers! Huge tags have badly marred the Eclairacuda Bandersnatch mural on Grace Alley. The city has cited us, and we have to clean the tag off AND try to perserve Eclair’s wonderful work. Robert is calling for helpers on Monday, April 1. What better way to spend April Fool’s Day than by helping preserve the work of an important street artist?

Please come help if you’re availble! It will involve scrubbing, citrus solvent, and much camaraderie. Call time is 10am; I imagine we can still use your help if you can’t get there til later. We hope to have the artist present to help guide our work.

Thank you SO much! Please help us, and invite your friends too!

xox—Carol Queen

PS — If you can’t make it but want to help with a donation (we are going to need gallons of fixative to prevent this from happening again!):

The Mission of the Center for Sex & Culture is to provide judgment-free education, cultural events, a library/media archive, and other resources to audiences across the sexual and gender spectrum; and to research and disseminate factual information, framing and informing issues of public policy and public health.
