The Mission District is a hot spot for street art, the largest concentration in the world of public painting that embodies activism, culture, passion, and desire for social change. Birthed in the early 1970s, a provocative new street art scene transformed San Francisco's legendary Mission District into an art epicenter that crosses popular culture, fine art and political audiences. Annice Jacoby, co-author of the new book, Street Art San Francisco: Mission Muralismo, will talk about an ever-growing movement of accomplished street art combining elements of Mexican mural painting, surrealism, pop art, urban punk, eco-warrior, cartoon, and guerilla graffiti that has catapulted many San Francisco artists into the international spotlight.
