One of the most enjoyable things about living in the city of San Francisco is how visually dynamic it is. There is simply art everywhere, but not in a way that inundates you. The most interesting pieces are hidden away in nooks and crannies, and many people often overlook the “candy”  placed in prominent locations.  ART on STREETS highlights this city’s art through the lens of a “Polaroid”  camera (except it’s an app on the phone).

This piece is located in a narrow alley and surrounded by construction. The mural was challenging to capture with my phone; in order to get the full scope, you’ll need to travel to the Mission district and see it in person. The piece spans half-way down the alley and incorporates classic San Francisco imagery with a nurturing twist, including musicians and the Golden Gate bridge.

To get there: Walk south along Valencia Street. After you pass 19th Street, look to your right for Cunningham Alley.
