Precita Eyes is a fantastic arts organization dedicated to the preservation and creation of murals, the Mission’s greatest art form. Founded in 1977, the organization helps organize murals, connect muralists to mural-able walls and runs classes, camps and tours for all ages.
The Mission is often described as “colorful”, and Precita Eyes is a big reason why. They have created and/or facilitated much of the awesomeness you see around the Mission. By channeling energy and discontent with The Man into beautiful works of art, Precita Eyes helps inspire and motivate the community. Plus, the murals just look badass.
The have lots of different mural tours every weekend afternoon at 1:30pm and a bunch of other times as well. Use your Live Local card to get $2 off on one and learn more about the social, political and artistic murals that are the soul of the neighborhood.
