Arts in Storefronts coming to Chinatown 

Arts in Storefronts will reach Chinatown in June.

The program has the work of local artists installed in vacant storefronts as a way to reinvigorate neighborhoods that have been hard-hit by the economic downturn, according to the San Francisco Arts Commission.

Arts in Storefronts has had successful launches in the Central Market, Tenderloin, Bayview and Mission neighborhoods, the commission said.

The success continues despite past attempts by vandals to derail the effort.

The commission is accepting applications from artists who’d like to display their work in Chinatown. Artists can download the application on the Arts Commission’s Web site. Deadline for submissions is April 16, 5 p.m., the commission said.

“Artists are asked to tailor their proposals to the Chinatown community and priority will be given to artists who live or work in the neighborhood,” the commission said in a release.
