Back in the Day: A Collective Memory of 24th Street, is a complimentary two-part show depicting the life, people and changes on 24th Street since 2007 via photography and “shadowbox” diorama art. Curated by longtime Mission District community members Linda G. Wilson and Cindy De Losa, this exhibition showcases a collection of 40+ color photographs originally taken by a group of voluntary photographers as part of a group project spearheaded by Wilson and El Tecolote newspaper. The second part of the exhibit includes 15 handcrafted miniature diorama displays that incorporate various “Homies” figurines all reflecting 24th Street businesses, storefronts and characters.
