What is this University? Of What? Who is Granny? What’s going on? Who did this?

Granny’s University of the Imagination is the private home of Jaina A. Davis—affectionately called Granny by eir friends (e likes to bake and knit). In 1997, e purchased the two-house/three-unit lot and began the art attack. An SFAI dropout and veteran zinester (“Flatter!” and Around&Around Productions), Jaina discovered that many creative friends were glad to help transform the 1896 cottage and the 1907 flat into living art installations. Something’s always mutating around here, so we invite the friends and neighbors in for a peek. Come on in!
