LIZ Activation: Everyday Superhero

You are an everyday superhero to someone! Stop by en route to the Target on the corner of Larkin + Fulton for the Asian Art Museum’s Free Sunday to explore how you are an everyday superhero and how someone in your community has been a personal superhero to you. You'll have the opportunity to design and make two capes, one for yourself and one for your superhero friend / family member. We will have a professional photoshoot of you and your superheroes in your bellowing capes on the Superhero Runway at the infamous Civic Center wind tunnel!

Inspired by Phillip Zimbardo's Heroic Imagination Project.

The best Ehtiopian pour over coffee will be available for purchase from SF Coffee Cruiser, a San Francisco youth-owned micro business.

The Living Innovation Zone Program:
The LIZ program makes public spaces available to experiment with temporary, creative installations that encourage people to connect with each other and the city while testing out ideas for long-range urban design transformations. This program is a part of an interagency team called Groundplay that is managed by San Francisco Planning. The Art/Lit LIZ is a collaboration between the Asian Art Museum, Main Public Library, Civic Center Community Benefit District, San Francisco Planning and the Civic Center Commons Initiative, designed and constructed by Youth Art Exchange.

The Village Artist Program:
The Village Artist Program (VAP) is offered by the Asian Art Museum and aims to support creative development directly aligned with growing and sustaining consistent community engagement amongst those who frequent the Civic Center Commons. The purpose of this program is to create a public platform via the Village Artists work that invites the community to explore and promote expression, creativity while deepening connection and compassion.

This event will reoccur on the first Sundays of each month until January 7th. Free admission on museum’s first Sunday.
