Murals of the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District

Garrett Sohnly, a local artist and member of the LCD’s Arts and Culture Committee, has been compiling a slideshow of the murals and street art of our neighborhood.

View our Mural Slideshow here.

If you spot a mural in our District – or other example of Leather Culture in the general vicinity of South of Market – send us  a picture, telling us where it is, and anything you know about the artwork or the artist(s) who created it.


The Arts and Culture Committee of the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District is very invested in the murals and public art visible throughout our special, South of Market neighborhood.   

We want to do more to help support our artists and enhance the beauty and culture of the District.  Accordingly, we have created and funded a program to help decorate any boarded up windows in our District, and have budgeted additional funds in the coming year to support major mural projects.

If you own or manage a building within the District with boarded up windows, OR that has a wall that could support artwork of any kind, please get in touch with us at arts-chair@sflcd.org.  

We have a small roster of local community artists whose work you can review, or we can help you select another artist, and provide both a cash stipend to the artist and some financial reimbursement for supplies and materials.   

If you are interested in this and would like to get started:

We believe that public art contributes to the character and vitality of a neighborhood, and we are hopeful that this program, while employing artists within our community and helping to support local businesses, will help to improve the look of our streets and reflect our community‚Äôs positive outlook and our commitment to the future of our neighborhood.
