Tourism For Locals: Galería de la Raza at the Heart of Latino Art Scene

Current Mural "Youth So Educated are Dangerous."

It has been said that revolution doesn't need art but that art needs revolution — but we argue that is not true because for revolution to exist it's in need of revolutionary art.

Galería de la Raza holds this to be true as the artistic and socially active heart of the Mission District's Latino community. The artistic collective has been an important gathering spot for not just artists, but intellectuals, writers, and the general neighborhood population for 44 years now.
