Luggage Store Gallery information
A dandelion pushing through sidewalk cracks, this plucky nonprofit gallery has for two decades brought signs of life to one of the toughest blocks in the Tenderloin. Art sprawls across the spacious 2nd-floor gallery, rising above the street without losing sight of it: this was the launching pad for renowned graffiti satirists – which is why the door is camouflaged by spray paint.
Two Luggage Store regulars you might recognize around town are Rigo and Brazilian duo Ogemeos. Rigo did the 'One Tree' mural that looks like a one-way sign by the 101 Fwy on-ramp in SoMa. And the Ogemeos did the mural of a defiant kid holding a lit firecracker atop the gallery building. With such oddly touching works, poetry nights and monthly performing-arts events, this place puts the tender in the Tenderloin.
