In which we remember to check our email
What do you take this organization for? An organization that ends its sentences with dangling modifiers, of this you can be sure. But can we also be a force for the overwhelming whateverness of email.
This may be the last one unless we receive something really tasty (baby names; relationship advice; deviled egg recipes). We’re concerned that the Mailbag function will lead readers to believe that this endeavor is a democratic one. Far from it, friends, nothing could be further from the sticky truth.
Anyhow, read on if you want to make art (for free!) that can be borrowed or licked, as one might do with a library book. Incidentally, Mission Bicycles is doing a project that involves throwing art a la Paperboy. Fun projectiles!
Remember when art was something you made fun of? Those were the days.

What is TALL?
The Tenderloin Art Lending Library, (TALL) is a project for lending and borrowing artwork to Tenderloin residents, free-of-charge. It is a trust-based program where artists provide artwork to be checked out by any member of the Tenderloin Community, all in the spirit of sharing and celebration.
TALL recognizes the importance of multiple literacies: it is as important to understand the beauty of a musical phrase or the composition of a drawing, as it is to learn how to read or compute numbers. TALL is based on the belief that each person in the Tenderloin community can appreciate and understand paintings, prints, drawings and all forms of visual arts expression, TALL provides that opportunity.
