Hospitality House Community Artist Spotlight: Tan Sirinumas

It was eventually through my contacts with the Hospitality House that I was introduced to the Hidden Gems in the Tenderloin project, and that I began to develop a sense of exploration for my own neighborhood. In 2014, I became a member of the Wildflowers Institute as well as the Tenderloin People Congress. These decisions really drove me out of my comfort zone in terms of making art. It made me curious about the people in my community and at the same time, I came to realize that there were so many buildings in the Tenderloin from which to draw inspiration for my art. I’ve always loved design and architecture and I wanted to show how the current situation in the Tenderloin, the struggle, the vulnerability, the influence of money, and the importance of culture and history, has come to represent the people who live here. Not only that, I wanted to show the beauty that exists in the Tenderloin. I want to preserve that beauty and history of the Tenderloin.

Through my relationships with these various organizations, I have begun to challenge the limits of my own work. I have begun learning and experimenting with different technologies and resources to create new ways of approaching my art. Today, I see myself growing alongside these community organizations in helping the people of the Tenderloin to stay strong and thrive in our lives, despite the hardships we go through together.
