In the middle of the Mission District, San Francisco, lies a not-so-hidden GEM of a destination. Clarion Alley has gone from tagger hang out to a curated public art space. With artists such as Kenshin Tomoshima, Mobb Pink, and others, the place simply drips with talent.
This sort of thing is a MUST for any city. Without spaces for public art we’re simply left with billboards and advertising nonsense invading our brains as we get about town. Museums? I love them. But how many folks ever step foot in one? I’ve been to Los Angeles a hundred times but LACMA? Twice?
What do you think? Are tax dollars better spent on multi million dollar museums and collections in vaults or public spaces for work and street art grants? Let us know what you think below or check out more from this insanely cool street on instagram
