PORTFOLIO : > Fight for the Neighborhood

Fight for the Neighborhood was spurred by the Tenderloin’s historical connection to the sport of boxing. The artists created a boxing gym installation that also serves as a reminder to stand up and fight for the neighborhood during tough economic times. Artist Chris Treggiari created the installation elements of the boxing ring and gloves while photographer Billy Mitchell (Sixth Street Photography) took photographs of local residents to create the foreground montage of the crowd watching the match.
