Denise Sullivan’s SF Lives
2nd Sunday mornings: live streamed chats in the bookshop

Sunday, June 13 – 10am
A conversation with
artist/networker Anna Lisa Escobedo

Join San Francisco columnist Denise Sullivan for a series of morning discussions with The City’s arts and cultural leaders and lesser-known workers, the everyday people who help make this place we call home, every second Sunday at 10 am, live streamed from Bird & Beckett Books in Glen Park.

This morning, Denise will engage artist and arts & community networker Anna Lisa Escobedo in a conversation on arts and accessibility in a post-pandemic environment.

As a muralist, Anna Lisa Escobedo tells the stories of her communities.

And from Calle 24 to the California Historical Society and Yerba Buena Center For The Arts, by connecting visual artists, poets and musicians to resources, Escobedo contributes to a more inclusive model for museums and cultural institutions.

Working through the pandemic to create safe, outdoor access to the arts for participants and observers, Escobedo will address how we’re doing and where we’re going with cultural equity and the arts in the post-pandemic environment.

View Bird & Beckett’s live streams on our YouTube channel and our Facebook page.  No audiences in the shop just yet.
