Mission District Street Art
In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.
In this segment, Spark visits San Francisco's Mission District, which has been a breeding ground for alternative art and culture for more than 40 years. Why has the neighborhood, more than any other in the city, been such a beacon for outdoor creative expression? We meet artists Susan Greene and John Jota Leaños and talk to Annice Jacoby, who explores the question in her new book Street Art San Francisco: Mission Muralismo.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
Check out the art in Balmy and Clarion Alleys with artists Susan Greene and John Jota Leaños -- and talk to Annice Jacoby about her book, Street Art San Francisco: Mission Muralismo.
