In 1.5 hours, explore the murals and graffiti of the Haight-Ashbury district, our neighborhood with a history of hippie counterculture, free love and radical street art. We’ll visit the “outdoor galleries” of mural- and graffiti-filled parking lots and streets, learn about historic Haight Street pieces from international artists like Banksy, Nychos, Apexer and more, see hippie-era murals, visit the homes of Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead, and discuss the history of graffiti culture, spray can vs. brush art, and how politics and legality comes into play with piecing, bombing, tagging and creating stunning murals.
