In memory of Kirsten Brydum activist murdered in 2008 in New Orleans. There have been several murals in this spot honoring her. One thing is constant and that is the small cameo of Kirsten at the top of the mural. At one time she was the focal point in the mural.
Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) was organized in 1992 and is the second oldest street art alley project in San Francisco. They are a grassroots community based artist-run organization. On their newly launched website they state their guiding principles. The first two give some incite into the types of murals you will find on the alley. One is “Visual messaging can provide a powerful vehicle for supporting political, economic, and social equity and dismantling intersectional oppression. The second is” Sensitivity and awareness of cultural, racial, economic, migratory, sexual, and gender-related challenges and identities is necessary for CAMP to function as an inclusive organization that maintains space for people of all backgrounds and experiences.
We are publishing 6 murals today with more direct social messages. Possibility the artist name is not as relevant as the message.
