Dream Again and Paint a Mural

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Artists, Blog, murals, public art | Leave a comment

You know that beautiful mural at the corner of Bartlett and 21st Streets? Daniel Galvez painted that mural, titled Dream, in 1996 and it’s had a healthy life until recently. Now the artist has generously offered his time to restore the mural to its original glory! Check out the original opening with Mayor Willie Brown, Ruth Asawa of Ruth’s Table, and other local luminaries below:

Want to be a part of the community? Learn the art of mural-making with one of the Mission’s most famous (he also painted Carnaval on 24th and South Van Ness). Come paint and restore Dream with Daniel in the month of October!

As some of you already know, Mission Community Market supports an array of local arts and music.

We are partnering with various muralist organizations, to help beautify the market location and showcase emerging and established artists.

Upcoming mural projects include a new youth mural to be installed with the help of artist Chris Treggiari. Another mural is planned, pending funding, for this summer. Stay tuned!

San Francisco’s StreetSmARTs program supported the Amate Mission mural, painted on the Mission Market wall and we are very grateful for their support. StreetsSmARTs is a collaboration between the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) and the Department of Public Works (DPW) that aims to restore San Francisco‚Äôs stature as a recognized, international destination for mural art. MCM looks forward to working with StreetSmARTs on future murals. If you’d like to support a mural or improvements to the streetscape (e.g. planters, fences, and trash areas), you can support MCM here.
