“Pier 70: In Its Own Words”

By

If you’re in San Francisco and at a loss for something to do tonight—or want to revise your plans and do something much cooler—head over to Dogpatch Wineworks for the opening of “Pier 70: In Its Own Words.”

A collaboration between Rumpus contributor, local artist, and community champion Wendy MacNaughton and Forest City (the minds behind the 5M Project), “Pier 70″ is a visual exploration of SF’s Dogpatch neighborhood. The exhibit hopes to enlighten visitors about the Dogpatch’s historical and present significance through an observation of the neighborhood’s community and identity.

Tonight’s event starts at 6pm at Dogpatch Wineworks (2455 Third St., at 22nd). While the exhibit continues through September 9th, the opening will feature live music and local food and wine from Dogpatch-based vendors. Admission is free, but you can also register for the event here.
