Oasis Mural In Progress

A large, wrap-around-the-building mural is now under construction at the corner of 11th Street and Burns Place (between Folsom and Howard).

When finished, the mural, called “SHOWTIME“, will decorate two sides of The Oasis, San Francisco’s home for Superstar Drag Shows, Fabulous Cabaret Performances and Unforgettable Events. It is being created by some of the city’s best-loved queer artists as a love letter to San Francisco.

If you visit this week, you might see any of the artists — Serge Gay Jr., Simön Malvaez, Elliott C Nathan, J Manuel Carmona , and Christopher McCutcheon — working on it.

Please join us at 3 pm on Thursday, June 2, at Oasis (298 11th Street) for the official unveiling of the mural, with honored guests Mayor London Breed and State Senator Scott Wiener.

Then come back for the party celebrating the five artists who painted the mural, starting at 9 pm.

As reported in The Bold Italic, funding for the piece was secured through the Leather & LGBTQ Cultural District, in association with the SF Arts Commission, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence‘s “Queer Artists for Queer Spaces” initiative, with support from Soma West CBD,.  Of course, Oasis’ owner and creative director, D’Arcy Drollinger, is the impresario who made it all happen.

To whet your appetite, here are a few pictures (by Christopher McCutcheon and David Hyman) of the work in progress:
