Overview
In a city known for its murals, street artists and public art, the Mid-Market district is packed with noteworthy works. Whimsical, colorful, monumental and yet often obscured, the art in the neighborhood often goes unnoticed. Come on a quick stroll to find four pivotal murals and sculptures that represent the best of the local and international, low-end and luxury art world in SF. Along the way, I'll explain why there has been an explosion in public art in this area over the past couple of years.
