Mission Mural - Political Art
San Francisco’s Mission District is filled with inspiring murals painted by local artists, many of them Chicano. Throughout the neighborhood, hundreds of walls and fences are decorated with colorful works of art, with themes ranging from political statements to scenes from latino cultural heritage.
We strolled through an amazing collection of activist mural art in Balmy Alley, expressing outrage over human rights and political abuse in central America, as well as racial discrimination and gentrification in the United States. We were moved and inspired by their calls for resistance against a history of Chicano displacement and marginalization.
