Amazing Stuff! Keep up the amazing creative ground breaking performances!
Part of Sukkot is the building of temporary Sukkah huts, or booths, as can be seen in the photo. Many urban dwellers don't have a place to build a Sukkah, so a few years ago a student in Brooklyn created a portable one on the back of a worktrike: the Pedi Sukkah.
This year the Chabad of Cole Valley has a Pedi Sukkah that will be appearing around the Haight Ashbury district. Its schedule is on Facebook:

Thanks Azeen. You did a great job on the article and I hope we'll have lots of new sketchers joining us for the fun!
How about annual membership fee. Or monthly. Or daypass.
I can't wait.. sounds like good times
Good luck to The New Parkway! Thanks for making it happen, Moses, and getting the community behind you on this!
Correction: movies are free, yummy food is not.
I don' t think it has much chance to succeed.
Official SPECIAL DELIVERY Bay Area 2012 VIDEO by Mapache Films...
The Sunday viewing was kept lowkey following the massive turnout on opening night, but you can still see it the last two Sundays in September (noon-6 p.m). It's located at 1350 Fourth St., Berkeley. Someone will let you in through the gate.

Is this still going on? Your article says it is on Sundays, but Endless Canvas says not open to the public -- which is it?
Love it!! I'm so excited!
This was one of the most amazing, authentic experiences around art, youth and community I have witnessed in recent memory. Thousands gathered to view this space and its jawdroppingly fabulous graffiti for free, with music, beer and wine, and an electric atmosphere that should make world cultural hubs like London, Berlin and Venice blush.
A few thousand mostly young folks pullulated in the once abandoned rusty, peeling trilevel concrete and steel building that seemed happy to be a host for all this activity. The people were happy together, drowning in art in 3D, dancing, flirting, posing, snap-shooting and juggling, all of them self-regulated, well-behaved and paying close attention to what they saw.
The floor, the walls, and ceiling and all kinds of nooks and crannies were painted. Many works displayed wit, wildness and undeniable artistry. At several points, the building trembled as the trains, often themselves adorned by the same art work now housed now inside the building, roared by.
The project as a whole shows mindful foresight and planning that is rare indeed. The police and the city govt. clearly had a welcome role in facilitating this art event by keeping a very low profile and just letting folks do their stuff. And to my understanding, this was no LA style Eli Lilly funded, rarified and ultimately impotent extravaganza, but a grassroots, collaborative, kickstarter and Bay area funded. If so, we should thank everyone that helped artwork blossom before our eyes in their natural habitat in this fresh, free and provocative way.
