Precita Eyes in the Mission District shows love of murals

Murals, the traditional Latino art form executed by artists like Diego Rivera, have been significant to the Latino culture for years. Precita Eyes is a place in the Mission District, a neighborhood in San Francisco rich with murals that does tours, sells supplies, offers expertise and classes to the community. It is also a non-profit organization for the continuation and preservation of murals. In the video, tour guide and muralist Patrica Rose talks about her experience as an artist in the community. Watch the video here.

    Hi Megan, I stumbled upon AWG.com and thought your post on the “What To Do About Mexico?” article was spot on and very astute.

    After skimming that site, I am astounded by the great number of racist, misogynist, hateful men (presumably) that frequent and sustain it. I’m just writing this to let you know how much I appreciated your post, and to warn you not to let those crazies grind you down. Being a white native Arizonan, I’ve been amply exposed to the horrific racism and prejudice that is growing in this state and region, and clear, logical thinking such as yours is refreshing.

    Why, thank you, Lindsay! I’m glad there are people out there who think logically about these issues and realize that the spiteful have no foundation for their loony arguments. I appreciate your comment very much. Thank you for reading. I hope you stick around for future posts.
