San Francisco is a city with a reputable amount of art housed within the many walls of the De Young, the Legion of Honor, the Asian Art Museum, SF MOMA (which reopens soon!), the list goes on. While there is certainly a good deal of indoor culture available, the outdoor street art scene should not by any means be overlooked. So get your vest and your camera ready to hit the streets and take in the murals and messages of our city’s many outdoor artists.*
* Some of these locations have art currently painted on temporary structures. We can’t guarantee it will still be there a month from now, so you’d better get a move on!
1. Clarion Alley
2. Balmy Alley
3. (Some of) Mona Caron‘s Works
4. A Piece by Daniel Doherty
5. The Haight
6. Oak and Van Ness
7. The Women’s Building
Bonus: 1AM SF Art Gallery
If you’ve made it this far, you probably really like street art. If that’s the case we recommend making a stop into the 1AM SF Art Gallery, where they showcase street art, give graffiti lessons, and sell every color of spray paint you could possibly imagine.
