Love Notes Window Display Reception
Of course, we love writing at 826 Valencia but what we love even more is writing about those we love! In celebration of our new window display, join us in the Pirate Store with Shannon Weber from LoveYou2.org. We'll be writing love notes to add to our new window filled with fond words, missed connections, secret admirers, and a little bit of straight-up mushy good feelings. Treats and drinks to share as well!
The display showcases love notes curated from events held by LoveYou2 between 2012–2014. At each event, the public was invited to respond to various prompts using the love notes as templates. Some chose to sign their notes, most did not. The seldom found opportunity for anonymity and being witnessed is golden.
All are welcome to participate. Inside the Pirate Store you can write a note to your one true love or to your nemesis. The display will be refreshed with notes through the month.
Love notes in this display curated from events held at: Perch, Lick Wilmerding High School, Dia de los Muertos, Thomas Edison Charter Academy, SFGH Foundation’s Hearts After Dark, Maker Faire, Burning Man Center Camp Caafe, International AIDS Conference, StoreFrontLab, Summberbridge, Succulence, Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival, and SF Bazaar.
