Tenderloin Art Lending Library
TALL is an artist-run project for lending and borrowing artwork by Tenderloin residents and others, free of charge. It is a trust-based program where art is lent and borrowed in the spirit of sharing and celebration. TALL recognizes the importance of multiple forms of literacy, asserting that every Tenderloin resident can appreciate and understand visual art. It increases exposure for individual artists and advances the idea of a “tenderloin” artists’ school. The library’s safe and welcoming circulation space will serve as an incubator for artists and residents looking for ways to build community.
