Mission murals, behind the scenes.

After walking past Balmy Alley for two years, I finally took a tour of it and other local murals with Precita Eyes, and wrote a blog post for StreetArtSF:

Walking through Mission streets, you are greeted by murals adorning storefronts, doorways, schools, and entire alleys. They are playful, confrontational, political, tongue-in-cheek. Some are painted with brushes and acrylics, some done with spraycans, still others look like children’s drawings. Behind many of these works of public art stands Precita Eyes, a mural arts organization keeping the Mission’s muralismo tradition thriving since 1977.
