Off the Beaten Track - San Francisco, Protest Murals of Clarion Alley
This is our first "Off the Beaten Track" post. You can expect regular updates on this topic where we will share stories of places people have been and discovered something that you would not discover in a typical guidebook. Thomas Marzano is one of our favorite bloggers, he blogs about things based around design, creativity and innovation and is also a great photography enthusiast. He is based in Amsterdam and constantly travels the world sharing his experiences. Today's post is based on a street decorated by local artists that Marzano stumbled upon while travelling in San Francisco.
Last weekend I was roaming the streets of San Francisco Mission area and walked by the wonderful Clarion Alley, which is an alley where local artists have created some wonderful murals. Of course this was a feast to my eyes and I did not hesitate one second to take some pictures of these wonderful pieces of protest art.
Hope you enjoy! – Thomas Marzano
