SAM SPADE IN SAN FRANCISCO!

SAM SPADE IN SAN FRANCISCO!

Owen Smith pays tribute to the classic San Francisco hard-boiled detective novel, Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon, with a series of colorful and expressive characters showcased in posters commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Art on Market Street 2008 Program.


The posters will be installed from Monday, June 16th, to Thursday, September 18th, on the pedestrian side of kiosks on Market Street between Van Ness and the Embarcadero.

And to kick off the project, Don Herron and Smith will lead one of
Herron's popular Dashiell Hammett Tours beginning at the southeast corner of Market and Third Streets on Saturday, June 28th, at 1 PM, absolutely free of charge. You'll get to scope out Spade and Archer’s office and other Falcon landmarks, as well as check out Smith’s posters and hear how he came up with each one.
