Join in for a San Francisco book launch event like no other, celebrating the people, cultures, and artists that make the Mission District a community.
In his latest photography book, The Mission, Dick Evans captures the pulse of life in the Mission District, the San Francisco neighborhood known for its murals and Latin American culture—and more recently for its rapid gentrification. Intimate, colorful images depict a place filled with diverse residents, stately Victorian houses, hand-painted store signs, Carnaval dancers, Día de los Muertos celebrants, political activists, and its namesake, Mission Dolores (here juxtaposed against portraits of Native people and indigenous cultural objects).
On April 13, 2017, we will celebrate the release of Evans’ book with a ceremonial blessing by Carla and Desiree Muñoz, words from Roberto Herandez (the Mayor of the Mission) Susan Cervantes, Founder of Precita Eyes, muralist Juana Alicia, and Dick Evans himself. Books will be available for purchase and signing by Dick Evans after the program.
