The Indoor Mural Project: A Living Survey of Street Art Opening Party - Saturday, April 23rd, 6-9pm

  White Walls and Montana Colors are proud to present The Indoor Mural Project: A Living Survey of Street Art, a series of works by both local and international street artists. Since March 1st, 941 Geary has been playing host to a series of site-specific works by an impressive lineup of graffiti and street artists in the heart of San Francisco. The Indoor Mural Project is a living, multi-layered exhibition where street art enthusiasts are invited to observe the progression and transformation of a contemporary gallery space by some of the most exciting artists working today.

During the exhibition, 941 Geary has operated as a 3,000-square-foot blank canvas for the selected artists to use as a starting point to build, collaborate and riff off of each other’s work organically. The Indoor Mural Project aims to energize the clean, formal space of the gallery with an infusion of movement, action, reaction and a generous amount of spray paint fumes (courtesy of Montana Colors). Championing the movement for the last six years, Justin Giarla has been working tirelessly to foster a strong community of artists, spectators, collectors, writers and curators actively engaged in the ongoing dialogue of graffiti and street art. The Indoor Mural Project serves as a tribute to both the artists and the community that has developed around their work.  

This one day show features an opening party, this Saturday, April 23rd from 6-9pm! We're excited to invite you to come see the metamorphosis of 941Geary!

941Geary is a pioneer exhibition space dedicated to artists and projects of cultural distinction currently contributing to the landscape of contemporary art. Founded by Justin Giarla in 2010, 941Geary  continues the intentions shared with its sister galleries; White Walls, The Shooting Gallery and Gallery Three. Under Giarla's curatorial direction the spaces foster the recognition of emerging artists, further exposure of established artists, build a community of enthusiasts and accentuate San Francisco as one of the most important cities in which to find the highly collected genres of Pop Surrealism, Lowbrow, and Urban Contemporary Art.
