Description

A celebration in photos, poetry and prose about this colorful and historic SF neighborhood
This book from San Francisco photographer Dick Evans captures the soul of San Francisco’s Mission District through its quintessential art form—the community mural – along with quotes, poems, and essays from the Mission’s own artists, writers, and leaders. These murals display a rich heritage through timeless portraits of the area’s martyrs, icons, and unnamed faces. The book also includes an original and creative foreword by Juan Felipe Herrera, the current United States Poet Laureate, and offers a look at how local murals have reflected the surrounding community, forming a visual history of free expression.
Enjoy tapas and Tempranillo to celebrate the Mission and our season finale!
