Precita Eyes Mural Arts Center, established in 1977 and currently located in San Francisco's Mission District, is a multipurpose community based arts organization that plays an integral role in the city's cultural heritage and arts education. One of only three community mural centers in the United States, the organization sponsors and implements ongoing mural projects throughout the Bay Area and internationally. In addition, it directly affects arts education in the San Francisco Mission District by offering four weekly art classes for children and youth (18 months through 19 years) and other classes for adults. These classes and community mural projects enable children, youth and adults to develop their individuality and confidence through creative activities and to experience unifying, positive social interaction through collaboration at an affordable and low/no cost.Plan trip to San Francisco with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
Precita Eyes reviews
We attended the Sunday afternoon mural tour with Patricia. She was a wonderful guide and has a genuine love for the diverse community in the mission area. She gave a wonderful and interesting tour..... more »
There are several artistic places all over the city and as we like street arts in general, I thought it might be a nice idea to join this group on the day where we haven't had planned anything. Carla.... more »
I would highly recommend this tour. We attended on a Sunday afternoon and our tour guide was Patricia. She has a genuine love for the Mission area and a real care for the community she lives in, this community is facing some real pressures. But she showed how art can create change and strengthen community and her knowledge of the murals was amazing.
Great collection of books and postcards and other objects / souvenirs about and around the mural culture in The Mission. The offer a walking tour to learn more and see the murals.
