Six published poets and a larger group of Telegraph Hill Dwellers gathered on a rainy Tuesday evening on January 15th for an evening of poetry. The event took place at the colorful and historic Beat Museum (http://www.kerouac.com) on Broadway in North Beach. The poets recited, read to musical accompaniment, or sang their poems. It was a diverse and eclectic assortment of poetry, and made for a unique, enjoyable evening.
In conjunction with the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Maritime Museum/Aquatic Park bathhouse building in 1939, Jon Golinger of Protect Coit Tower will be giving a special historic Coit Tower Murals Tour.
Learn the inside story of how the first big art project of the New Deal came together and about the 25 artists who painted the Coit Tower murals between January & June 1934.
