Seven by 7 is a photo retrospective showcasing Jimmie Fails time living as the Artist in Residence in the historic Doolan Larson Residence on the corner of Haight and Ashbury June and July of 2021. 7 San Francisco photographers documented Jimmie’s experience, as he prepared for up coming film roles, wrote, and lived for new inspiration.
1/1 Works are available for $1,000. Limited Edition Books (100) signed by Jimmie Fails IV are $50. Books are available for purchase at www.ValueCulture.org/books
Jimmie Fails is best known for his role as the Last Black Man of San Francisco in the critically acclaimed film the “Last Black Man of San Francisco.” Jimmie’s road to stardom was not without challenges, growing up in a San Francisco group home, and beating the odds to Hollywood success.
A limited number of books of the photo shoots will be printed, signed by Jimmie, and for sale to the public with proceeds benefitting Value Culture. The works on view at 1506 Haight St. will be on sale benefitting Value Culture cultural and educational programs, and supporting artists in need.
The Legacy and National Treasure Doolan Larson residence 577 Ashbury and storefronts at 1506 Haight St. are managed by SF Heritage and were donated to SF Heritage by Norm Larson after his passing to be a haven for artists, creatives, and preserve the counter culture of the Haight Ashbury. The building was very central during the Summer of Love, with visitors such as Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead. It’s now re emerging as host to one of the best artist in residence programs in San Francisco, with artists such as Jeremy Fish (illustrator/artist), Ben Juodvalkis (composer/musician), Melecio Estrella (artistic director/dance artist), Gabriel Christian (dance artist/performance artist), and the featured artist of this book and exhibition, Jimmie Fails (actor/writer/model).
The new Artist in Residence program's goal is to support the vision for the property to promote art, equity and the interpretation of the Haight Ashbury neighborhood and the Counter Culture.
Thank you to all of the photographers Jenna Harkins, Michael Zagaris, Emmanuel Blackwell, Misha Vladimirskiy, Nate Cohen, Sasha Netchaev, and Grady Brannan for donating their time and efforts for this San Francisco show.
