Precita Park | Precita Avenue & Alabama St., San Francisco, CA
The 2013 Urban Youth Arts Festival is bringing back their 1,000 square feet of portable wall space to Precita Park for artists of all ages to express themselves with free paint, brushes, even aerosol paint cans.
The Urban Youth Arts Festival is in its 17th year of bringing out the walls, recycled from year to year. In addition to the live painting there’s a lineup of live music, poetry performances, a kids art station some free food and a BBQ potluck.
17th Annual Urban Youth Arts Festival
July 20, 2013 | 1-6 pm
Precita Park (Precita Ave. & Alabama St.), SF
The Precita Eyes Mural Center puts on the event. Every year 200 to 300 people show up and organizers think that it’s a good way to keep kids out of trouble–given the 200 cans of aerosol paint that are used to make art on the walls, instead of tags on public spaces.
Extra incentive: The best art pieces will be auctioned off with some being kept and shown throughout the year at galleries.
