40 years ago Susan Cervantes and her husband Luis founded Precita Eyes Muralists in San Francisco's Mission District.
These days, it’s impossible to walk around the Mission without running into a mural. But that wasn’t always the case. Originally inspired by the Mujeres Muralistas, a pioneering women’s muralist collective based in the neighborhood, Cervantes and Precita Eyes have helped create more than 400 murals throughout the city and beyond.
Precita Eyes holds its first-ever Street Art in Cinema Film Festival at the Grand Theater in San Francisco on Saturday, June 17th. You can also join Cervantes on a special anniversary mural history tour around the Mission on Saturday, June 17th and every third Saturday through September.
