Artist Alberto Ybarra is a native San Franciscan and an artist you should know.  You may recognize his work from the illustration series he did depicting a changing Mission neighborhood:

Now Ybarra has collaborated with The Mission Community Market on a new outdoor mural on 21st St.  He hopes the mural celebrates the history and beauty of the Mexican roots of the Mission District and the community brought together by locally grown food.

JOIN US FOR THE MURAL UNVEILING!!

When: Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.
Where: 21st and Mission (mural located on 21st)”

* ART * MUSIC * TAMALES * NEIGHBORS *

The Mission Community Market, the non-profit marketplace and community organization, and I will be unveiling the mural I have created of my family’s Mexican hometown on February 11th at 11am, at the corner of 21st and Mission Streets. The mural and unveiling are sponsored by the Mission Community Market and building owner Blast Music.

“Corazon de Campesinos” is inspired by the small ranch town of San Juan Citala, in Jalisco, Mexico, hometown of my mother and her family. The ranch thrives off its abundant fields of tomatoes, peppers, and corn. Growing up in south city, I spent my summers at the ranch, where I would play with cousins, work the tomato fields, and watch old movies in the town square. From a 9’x45’ landscape, the mural features life in San Juan Citala as it has both evolved and stayed the same over the decades. The images are based on my own memories, photographs, and stories told by my family.

I am honored to collaborate with The Mission Community Market on this outdoor mural project. I hope the mural celebrates the history and beauty of the Mexican roots of the Mission District and the community brought together by locally grown food.

Gracias!

Alberto
