Understanding the history and culture of communities is essential to building new places that feel authentic and alive. Forest City, creators of the 5M Project, are making the next evolution of place at Pier 70. IN ITS OWN WORDS is a visual story depicting the history, communities, character, and identity of Pier 70 and the Dogpatch.
Join us and the artist, Wendy MacNaughton, to see her story and share your own.
There will be wine and food from local producers!
