Artist Channels Positive Aspects of Mexico Through new Mural in the Mission

Bad news is all that many people hear coming from Mexico these days. But artist Jet Martinez wants to change that through his new mural on a wall of Mission Market on Bartlett near 22nd Street.

“I wanted to address some of the other aspects of Mexican culture without getting bogged down in the politics,” he says.

His mural, Amate Mission, will be dedicated Thursday evening at the weekly farmers' market that takes place in the area, Mission Community Market.
