PRECITA EYES MURALISTS, IN YOUR WORDS
Listen to what people are saying about Precita Eyes, and take a tour of the Mission's mural-making community.
Thanks to muralists Juana Alicia and Meera Desai, youth artist and Precita collaborator Xavier Bess, Calle 24 cultural district organizer Erick Arguello, and friends at the California Historical Society Murales Rebeldes community day and the Cesar Chavez Day parade, April 2018.

MURALS WE HAVE LOVED AND LOST
Twenty years ago in the Mission, the Lilli Ann mural disappeared overnight to a developer's zeal. Public outcry and a landmark legal decision brought partial redress. But the cycle of mural erasure and community resistance continues today.
Nicknamed "Lilli Ann" for the garment factory it adorned, "Chuy"Campusano's exuberant four-story mural defined the corner of Treat Ave. and 17th Street for 14 years. But on July 25, 1998, it was erased overnight when the building's new owners whitewashed it. Under the Visual Artists' Rights Act, the artist's family later won a precedent-setting settlement.
Murals By Students Around the Bay
From Daly City, Oakland and the Mission, young people's visions of tradition and challenge, the underwater world, and the future of technology, here.
