A new La DoÃ±a mural is in progress on Mission and 26th Street.
La DoÃ±a de Mission, which just performed in Stern Grove last weekend, is painted on a wall on the 26th and Mission by legendary Bay Area muralists DJ Agana, Robz and Vogue. âI feel like she’s someone girls and women admire and who represents who we are, reflecting the neighborhood and where we come from,â Agana said.
The wall is outside the Casa Guadalupe Market. âWith the impact of the supersexualization of young women of color in the media, it’s even more important to recognize the advancement of musically talented icons like La DoÃ±a,â said Agana. Vogue, one of the artists who worked on the mural, which was funded by the San Francisco Giants, said it has an impact when people drive and instantly recognize the musician in the community.
This weekend, stop by and check out the mural en route to the many events happening in the Mission! To witness it:
Who doesn’t like wet paint? Friday and Saturday are the last days to experience Jen Props’ art at The Drawing Room
In the Drawing Room on 23rd Street, there is much more than drawings. In fact, nowadays it is filled with acrylic and ink based works. The current exhibition of “Wet Paint” by artist Jen Prop will be on view until Saturday, so stop by between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. if you want to meet the artist and hear him talk about his work. .
Otherwise, The Drawing Room is open Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
An artistic exploration through the Mission
On Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., you can stroll from the Catharine Clark Gallery to the David Ireland House, KADIST and Southern Exposure – and enjoy the art that these spaces have to offer. Sounds like a perfect plan for Saturday and a great way to take advantage of the first official Saturday of summer. No appointment is necessary, just go out and enjoy the art.
Want to be proud of pride?
Well, Curio Bar is here for you. They are having a pride party on Saturday which will run from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Curio Bar at 775 Valencia. Get the info to get your dance here.
Get Jazzy at Etcetera Wine Bar
The velor seats outside the Etcetera Wine Bar evoke that old-fashioned nostalgia we all crave from time to time. So grab a friend, put on something fun if you like, and head to Valencia Street from 5-9pm on Sunday nights to listen to 29th Street Swingtet playing some jazz!
Laugh in the afternoon at CafÃ© Atlas
There is a comedy show at Atlas Cafe on Saturday hosted by Mutiny Radio. If you want to stop, consider reserving a place! The show is free, but they ask you to tip the comedians (i.e. if they make you laugh). More info here!
