Chrome’s new Valencia Street shop has been open for a few weeks now, but they’re just getting around to throwing a grand opening party. They promise free beer and tacos, and live tattooing. Plus, they’ll be having a charity photo show featuring local photographer Travis Jensen, who’s been taking some pretty killer snaps of the neighborhood over the years.
Titled “Mission District: Feet On The Street”, show is a collection of 35mm film, digital and iPhone images snapped on the streets of San Francisco’s vibrant Mission District. All proceeds from pieces sold/raffled will go to Chalk SF, a youth run, peer-to-peer employment program targeting at-risk youth by placing them in paid jobs typically staffed by adults. Chrome has also made a limited edition series of books with my images from the show as well as other SF-themed selects, which will be available for sale at show. All proceeds from books sold will also go to Chalk SF.
Party kicks off at 7pm Saturday!
