The Art of Disability Culture
Opening today, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., is Ruth’s Table’s latest art exhibit, showcasing the work of artists with disabilities and giving the public the opportunity to engage with artwork from people with disabilities.
Of course, the gallery, located at 3160 21st St. between Mission and Capp is very accessible: Wheelchairs are welcome, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be included at the opening, audio descriptions will be available for each piece, and written materials will be available in large print and Braille.

Come meet your neighbors and enjoy some art on Sunday at 1435 San Bruno Ave. near 25th Street. Organizers say one of the goals for the event is to “connect with real humans doing real things.” We could all use some of that.
More than 25 vendors, artists, musicians, and various groups will be out from noon to 5 p.m., and anyone is welcome to sell their wares or perform, just contact @BuildingCommunityCollective to sign up.
Young writers of color
Submissions will run March 1 through April 8 for the Young Writers of Color Festival, a workshop and mentorship opportunity summer for aspiring school-aged BIPOC writers. The festival accepts personal pieces, monologues and small-team projects, and will culminate in a performance by the winners, who will also win a $250 Visa gift card.
It’s never been easy to be on time when taking Muni, and things might be a bit more difficult for a while. Make a habit of checking your Muni arrival times before you head to the bus stop; AT&T shut down its 3G network, impacting more than 650 displays in our city’s transit prediction system. They still have live updates for routes on their website and, eventually, Muni plans to upgrade those little screens to a new system.
