See what we did last year: TK Art of the City
Long time TK resident and current residential manager Doug Vann took portrait photos of current TK residents and asked them to share briefly on how living in the building impacts their lives.
His photo series was exhibited at last year’s TK Art of the City. The project is documented in a commemorative book, Why TK? A Celebration and Appreciation of the First 10 Years. Order your copy here.

The Tashiro Kaplan building is now home to a new, independent, contemporary art gallery. METHOD Gallery occupies the large, window-lit space at the front of Project 106, a collection of new studios and commercial units built out in the long dormant, 4500 SF Tashiro basement space underneath 4Culture. TK Commercial space coordinator, Paul McKee, took over tenancy of the space, and designed and constructed the units. It is shaping up aesthetically, and as a new hub for activity during artwalk and other events. The TK welcomes Paul, his partners at Method, and all his tenants.
