Lava Mae, by Denise Sandoval, re purposes a bus providing showers for the homeless in SF. Curbside chats will take place at the opening reception on Thursday February 12 from 6-9PM. It started with a cab drive and a zinger of a line delivered by a seasoned cabbie. "Welcome to the land of broken dreams," he said. Those seven words, a desire to bring about change, and a belief that mobile/moveable could be powerful set in motion what eventually became Lava Mae. Started by private citizens who believe that access to showers and toilets shouldn't be a luxury Lava Mae, a project of the Tides Center, seeks to reach those who lack access to these necessities.
