Clarion Alley gives you a great sense for the numerous local and national political tensions that concern residents of the Mission and San Francisco more broadly. You’ll find scathing critiques of “tech” culture, the current American president, and much more. The walls here slap you with unadulterated emotion and argument. Something remarkably different, and refreshing, from the chic, hipster Valencia shops just next door. They tell a different story, and give much more context to the less-advertised drawbacks and displacement that often come along with economic prosperity in cities. If you really want to know what the locals think about everything, just take a walk down Clarion.
Walking end-to-end and taking in the artwork.
Just show up!
Yep, we vetted it already.
