Clarion Alley is one of the those places in San Francisco that many people miss. It is place where people do socially engaged public art. It is located in the Mission District. It supports social, economic, racial, environmental and racial justice. The cool thing about teaching Extended School Year this year is that the school they put us at is located near Clarion Alley and I get to walk through it everyday on my way from BART to the school we are at for Extended School Year.
To some Clarion Alley can be a little dodgy and sketchy but to me it is a beautiful place in San Francisco:
Clarion Alley is one of those places that is not in the tourist books but it is so authentic Mission and San Francisco and needs to visited by all.
