Explore the Dogpatch Neighborhood through Art and Wine

Despite being one of the oldest San Francisco neighborhoods, Dogpatch, the half-residential, half-industrial enclave along the eastern waterfront, is also one that is perpetually undergoing transition. Escaping both the 1906 earthquake and fires that ravaged the city and the dot-com development boom, Dogpatch remains an enigmatic locale to most.

Forest City, creators of the 5M Project, and artist Wendy MacNaughton aim to change that on August 15 with "Pier 70: In Its Own Words," a visual telling of the Dogpatch's history, community, and identity. MacNaughton, despite living next door in Potrero Hill, said before undertaking the project that she knew little about the neighborhood's history, and how pivitol it had been in making S.F. what it is today. Her popular documentary series, Meanwhile, which visually and textually profiles different S.F. communities (and is being made into a book by Chronicle), is an intimate, touching, and witty unveiling of our city's beautifully fractured tendencies. Complementing MacNaughton's art are local wine and food from Dogpatch producers, as well as live music.

"Pier 70: In Its Own Words" starts August 15 at 6 p.m. (and continues through Sept. 9) at Dogpatch WineWorks, 2455 Third St. (at 22nd St.), S.F. Admission is free.
