Roused by Diego Rivera’s 1930s San Francisco wall paintings and incited by US international strategy in Latin America, 1970s Mission muralists (muralists) drove by Mia Gonzalez set out to change the political scene each painting in turn. The most punctual works by Mujeres Muralistas (‘Women Muralists’) and Placa (‘Mark-production’) made a unified creative front. Today, wall paintings range thirty years, from a commemoration for El Salvador dissident Archbishop Óscar Romero to praise to female craftsmen, including Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Presently not-for-profit Precita Eyes runs muralist-drove visits that spread 60 to 70 paintings inside a six-to 10-square sweep of Balmy Alley.
