Originally a men’s-only store, Department Seventeen migrated from their tiny space in Nob Hill to Hayes Valley last month. Now with a small but growing selection of women’s wares, the new location is filled with a discerning collection of modern apparel and accessories for both genders.
Walking through Hayes Valley this week, I ran across some eye-catching mixed media murals. Using multi-faceted shades of glass, along with plastic figurines to create uplifting city scenes, these pieces offer a moment to appreciate art in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown. These mosaics are part of the Hayes Valley Art Coalition’s 580 Hayes Elder Art Park project.
