Rob Lee’s Castro ’91 Limited Edition Series of Prints and Canvases
are inspired by the
infamous Halloween celebrations that took place annually in San Francisco’s Castro District.
The event, which started in 1948 as a Children's costume contest and parade
gradually transformed into a LGBT celebration and then a huge street party
along Castro and Market streets with tens of thousands attending.
At its peak, half a million or more revellers took over the streets and
turned the Castro into the wildest open air party in America.
