Clarion Alley Street Art

Edgey, Modern Street Art in Clarion Alley
The San Francisco Mission district is full of street art. Most of it explores the neighborhood's rich Latino history. But Clarion Alley has murals of a different sort. The messages in the alley are more modern and very political.

As you can see in the image, a message protesting the gentrification of the Mission and all along the alley you will see messages about recent elections, affordable housing and inclusion.

There is a muralist's code to the alley and an artist will "own" a spot until they choose to give it up to another muralist. So some pieces stay up for many years while other spots turn over. So even if you've been before, you should consider returning the the alley to see what's up.

The alley is easy to get to from the 16th street BART station.
