Meet your guide in front of the Misión San Francisco de Asís. Established in 1776 under the direction of Father Juniper Serra, the Mission is the oldest intact building in San Francisco The Mission has been a witness to all of San Francisco's history including the California Gold Rush and the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. Inside the chapel, you will see some of the most sophisticated religious art in the entire mission chain.
Next, we will take some time to contemplate the Clarion Alley Mural Project, established in 1992 by a volunteer collective of residents artists inspired to use public art as a force for marginalized communities and a place where social justice could speak loudly. The Project has produced over 700 murals by artists of all ethnicities, ages, and levels of experience.
Next, prepare yourself for The Women’s Building, an anchor institution in the ever-changing Mission District. The Woman's Building helps thousands of women to gain access to social services, workshops, wellness classes, and community connections. The building proudly features the MaestraPeace, a mural that testifies to the courageous contributions of women through time and around the world.
By now, you will have worked up an appetite, so we’ll wander over to Dandelion Chocolate where the art of chocolate making is everywhere. Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the Mission District of San Francisco. Every seat in the house provides a view of the chocolate-making process, as they roast, crack, sort, winnow, grind, conch, and temper small batches of beans and then mold and package each bar by hand.
When you visit, try the Brownie Bite Flight, three cupcake-size brownies. Each contains a chocolate of a different origin and offers a unique flavor. Our next stop will be to check out a gallery that features work by locals. Nearly 200 local artists are members of the City Art Cooperative, and their art covers a wide range of mediums, including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and jewelry.
As the name suggests, this co-op space is owned and run by local artists. The cooperative gallery has a welcoming atmosphere and features works by newbies and veteran working artists alike. See something you like? The artist may be on site share their story. Mixcoatl is an Aztec name that means "The Milky Way” or many stars blended into one galaxy. Mixcoatl Handicrafts & Jewelry specializes in bringing together authentic, original Indigenous handmade arts, jewelry, and clothing from all the Américas.
The shop owners want to share their culture and support its artisans in beautiful neighborhood called La Mission. You will enjoy browsing the folk art and clothing for all ages.
No mural tour of the Mission District would be complete without a walk in Balmy Alley. Murals first appeared in the mid-1980s when a troupe of mural activists began to cover all the garage doors and fences running the length of the block with visual meditations praising indigenous American cultural heritage.
Today, mural subjects have expanded to include gentrification and government injustice. Renowned for their irreverence and political import, Balmy Alley has become a destination for appreciators of street art and political culture alike. We'll finish our tour with another locally inspired treat! Humphry Slocombe is San Francisco’s definitive trendsetter in ice cream innovation – they combine unconventional flavors with ultra-premium ingredients.
Besides favorites such as Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee and Secret Breakfast (Bourbon and Cornflakes), the eclectic staff constantly dream up irresistible flavors that change with the season. Here’s a small sample: Bacon, Ancho Chilies, Carrot, Beernut, Boysenberry Crisp, Caramel Apple Elvis: The Fat Years, Kumquat Poppyseed, Oolong, Peanut Butter Curry, Pistachio Brittle, Red Hot Banana and Tahitian V*n!ll@. Enjoy sampling their bizarre, delicious, frozen universe.
After you are done with the tour, we recommend spending some time at Mission Dolores Park, one of the city's most popular parks and the vibrant heart of this vibrant, culturally diverse neighborhood.
On sunny afternoons people flock to the park to play, picnic, lounge, walk their dogs, and enjoy spectacular views of the city's skyline and beyond. Say goodbye to the group but feel free to pick a spot on lush green lawn and do a little people watching.
