Location Details

This "al fresco" textbook for all of us will teach the importance of a general strike which we need to put an end to the profit motive that is the cause of the budget "crisis" and war. On Saturday, July 18, at 2 p.m., a free tour of the workingclass murals of downtown San Francisco will enrich your understanding of the workingclass cultural heritage of our little City by the Bay.

Hobos to Street People: Artists’ Responses to Homelessness from the New Deal to the Present
By Art Hazelwood, Tim Drescher and Jos Sances
Exhibition and Mural Tour
California Historical Society Exhibition with Art Hazelwood, followed by a tour of history sites. The exhibition focuses on the artwork created in response to the unprecedented poverty of the Great Depression and is mirrored by contemporary artwork that looks squarely at the economic wasteland that has resulted from the last thirty years of capitalism.
The mural tour will include the Rincon Annex murals, formally known as the "History of San Francisco," by Anton Refregier, the ILWU memorial nearby and the Arnett Watson mural in the Tenderloin. Transportation from the California Historical Society to other sites on your own (walking, bicycling or city buses will easily suffice).
