This afternoon I took a stroll through the Mission District here in San Francisco to check out some of the street art. On nearly every street corner you will find something funky and unique, from graffiti to murals.
Pretty much any spare wall is seen as a blank canvas and artists take advantage by showing off their wizardry. To my amazement – and relief – most of the murals that I saw today were completely (or nearly) untouched by your typical “tagging” that seems to be synonymous with street art.
After this brief photo journal today, I am quite positive that there is a strong case here for a specific art tour. The other option I am thinking is an art specific pdf map that outlines where to find the best murals and a little about the artists.
I would love to hear if you agree so please let me know if this is something you would do in the comments section.
Below are some of the pictures I snapped.
