Chicano “street art” murals in the Mission District, SF
Balmy Street is a alleyway of garages and homes painted with the most concentrated collection of “street art” murals in the City. Visit Precita Eyes Visitor Center around the corner for more information about Chicano street art.
This is a leading example of Chicano mural environments with a dramatic, emotional focus on political protest messages. The faded early murals (from the 1970s & 1980s) emphasize the culture and struggles of Central America; more recent ones jab at hipster gentrification and the loss of affordable housing for locals.
