The Mission District in San Francisco explodes with murals. It is a wild mix of traditional Chicano imagery, contemporary spraycan styles and pieces painted by kids and other community members. And the scale is small — garages, fences, low buildings. Balmy Alley is the go-to mural destination, but you can find murals on all kinds of streets and alleys in the Mission and beyond. Here’s a snapshot — enjoy!
