Kids — stop and think before you tag that building with your spray can! Why not head down to the 12th annual SF/Bay Area Urban Youth Arts Festival instead, where aerosol painting will actually be one of the featured activities?
Held at Precita Park (at Precita Avenue and Folsom Street) in San Francisco on Saturday, this free wingding — which runs from from 1 to 6 p.m. —also features more traditional painting, plus live music from John Da Bomb, the Baysix, Slap Factory, Irie Dole, Larkin Street Youth and DJ Cuba and Dzyer. Who knows? Maybe a future Diego Rivera will emerge from the aerosol haze.
The event is sponsored by Precita Eyes Muralists, a nonprofit that for more than 30 years has supported community mural art and is currently serving more than 10,000 people annually.
