San Francisco! Join us as we explore and snap pictures of the numerous and unique street art murals of Clarion Alley, a Mission District gem that has served as canvases for numerous local up and coming and internationally known street artists.
Positioned in the very heart of the Mission District is an alley way that runs between Mission St. and Valencia St. parallel to 17th and 18th St. is Clarion Alley. As many artists and admirers of art have learned, this alley isn’t your regular ol’ alley.
Clarion Alley has been a site for bohemian culture and art culture dating as far back as the early sixties. In the early 90s a volunteer collective of six North Mission residents: Aaron Noble, Michael O’Connor, Sebastiana Pastor, Rigo 92, Mary Gail Snyder, and Aracely Soriano formed CAMP (Clarion Alley Mural Project).
This resulted in over 150 murals on and around Clarion Alley by artists from various backgrounds, styles and geographical locations.
To this day Clarion Alley serves as a starting point for many artists that are looking to start their careers or are looking for the opportunity to finally display their work to the public. For many this is the chance to show public work for the very first time.
Grab your trusty camera, a friend and join us as we explore this colorful corridor of art and discover unknown masterpieces created by local and international street artists from all over.
