About Jingletown:
Jingletown acquired its name at the turn of the century when Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would “jingle” in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area, signifying prosperity. As time went on the neighborhood went into disuse, but in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces. It is now a thriving artist community and one of the fastest growing arts district in the Bay Area. In a time when our neighborhood has been changing dramatically, the goal of the Jingletown Arts and Business Community is to heighten awareness about the rich and diverse population of working and exhibiting artists and the creative opportunities in the Jingletown Arts District. For a complete listing of Jingletown artists, businesses and upcoming events in the area, please visit our website: www.jingletown.org

Sunday Graffiti Paint-over…


Copyright Mariah Carle

Neighborhood clean up

Today was a warm sunny Sunday.
Armed with paint rollers, and huge buckets of paint several of us met together to paint out graffiti on local Jingletown buildings.

Today was a great day to see just how the Jingletown community works, several of us gathered to do a bit of clean up.
All the while more Jingletown locals wandered in and out with dogs, bikes, and chatted as we painted, swept, scrubbed and cleaned up around the White Elephant Sale Building.
I ran into with Lee the Puzzlemaker on my way home and we talked about an art project I am working on this month.
