Some of San Francisco’s most outstanding art is found on city streets, in neighborhoods like Visitacion Valley. As part of our Heritage in the Neighborhoods project, we’ve mapped some of the best known examples of public art in this southern district, most created by San Francisco-based artists. Themes depicted in Visitacion Valley’s public art include neighborhood pride, significant local places and buildings, multiculturalism, natural landscapes, and more.

We’ve included highlights of murals and other public works of art that we know still exist today. This map is by no means comprehensive as we could not go out and confirm as many as we would like, so we welcome your suggestions! Please email kyoung@sfheritage.org if you have knowledge of (and even have photos of) existing Visitacion Valley art that we’ve missed.
