AAA Editor Notes

Precita Eyes Mural Arts & Visitors Center is at 2981 24th St. This organization is committed to promoting San Francisco's rich tradition of street art and bringing attention to the city's gifted muralists, many of whom live in the Mission District. Rotating exhibits spotlight the work of such noted artists as Susan Cervantes and Juana Alicia. The center also offers a varied schedule of art classes and workshops. The most enjoyable way to learn more about the history and cultural context of Mission murals is to take one of the center's guided walking tours. They visit such locations as nearby Balmy Alley, which is filled with outstanding examples of “the people's art,” and 24th Street. Guided tours are available.
Tour fees $15-$20; $10 (ages 65+ and college students with ID); $6 (ages 12-17); $3 (ages 0-11).
