Over a two year period, the Excelsior Action group has worked with the community, city, and the library to realize the goal of “Greening the Excelsior through Art” via the Excelsior Branch Library. With the help of Architecture for Humanity and the Community Challenge Grant Program this goal was reached this year and we are ready to honor the work done by so many in this district to beautify our neighborhood. Along with this large art project, we are honoring the Excelsior District's historic city street names, which were changed during World War II. Featured events will include performances by groups representing China, Japan, and India which were once street names in the neighborhood. Please join us for this reception and celebration of the Excelsior.
