Photographer Dick Evans introduces his new book of photographs of San Francisco's Mission District that focus on that neighborhood's quintessential art form, the community mural. The Mission, published by Heyday Books with foreword by Juan Felipe Herrera and introduction by Carla Wojczuk, features photographs of murals, architecture, and residents, together with quotes, poems, and essays by artists and writers from the Mission.
Special Guest: Artist Juana Alicia has been creating murals and teaching for forty years. Her sculptural and painted public works can be seen in Nicaragua, Mexico, Pennsylvania, and in many parts of California, most notably San Francisco. Her work is associated with the greatest artistic and political achievements of the Chicano movement.
