Manny’s: The History of the Mission’s Murals

January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

An evening with Susan Cervantes, founder of Precita Eyes, and the history of and the cause to preserve the history of the Mission murals.

The vibrant murals of the Mission District hold a lot of history. History of struggle, harships, celebration, and community. The beautiful storytelling of each mural is breathtaking, each of one of them poised with uniqueness and importance.

However, what are the origins of such beautiful pieces of art? When and how did they come about?

Founder of Precita Eyes , Susan Cervantes, joins us at Manny’s to discuss the history of the Mission’s murals and the fight to preserve an integral part of the Mission District.

Note: The January Democratic Debate is currently scheduled for January 14th but may be moved due to Trump’s Impeachment Trial. If the debate does occur on the 14th we will be re-rescheduling this event.
