Join the MCCLA, the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) and the Department of Public Works (DPW) for a panel discussion on a recent history of public mural art in San Francisco.
Featuring celebrated urban artists Francisco "Twick" Aquino, Jonathan Brumfield, Jet Martinez and Marina "Mincho" Perez Wong, panelists will present slides of recently completed murals, discuss their projects and speak about challenges that graffiti art...ists face in transitioning from tagging to creating murals that serve a public function.
The featured panelists have participated in the SFAC/DPW StreetSmARTS program, which connects urban artists with private property owners to create vibrant murals that reduce the likelihood of vandalism.
FREE Admission. Refreshments will be provided.
