Clarion Alley has famous street art often of a political or cultural nature in the Mission District of San Francisco
Our cruise through the Panama Canal started in Fort Lauderdale and would take us to Aruba, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico and finally San Francisco and then onto Monterey.
On Saturday 28th October we went to Clarion Alley in the Mission District. In the alley are world famous street art murals. The left hand side of the alley was in bright sunshine as we walked away from the Mission Police Station end.
Looking down at the sidewalk.
A foundation mural of Clarion Alley
This mural depicts the forces that Chuy saw in the North Mission at that time: punks, modern primitives, Raza organizers Xenophobic politicians & predatory churches.
The Mural is a reminder of constant struggle & the need to organize. Farmworker flag flying high.
Foe over 20 years volunteers have restored this mural, inscribing it with renewed dedication & keeping it a foundational portrait for the alley
