BBC Picks Mission Dist. Murals in Top Ten

“Why wait in line at a gallery when these splendid works are on offer in the street? And they can be enjoyed for free! We have picked 10 of the best for your viewing pleasure,”

reports the BBC in their Travel section’s list “The Best Public Art in the World.” Though I think lists are marketing devices (Marketing studies have shown that consumers’ eyes catch numbers and lists, which is why you see lists on magazine covers, Websites, etc. Wish I found a source to support this claim! Here’s a TIME article about lists.) This BBC list has Mission District murals down for number 9. Since I spent last year painting, curating, organizing, and documenting the murals at CELLspace, I thought I’d share this honor. Wonder how it will impact tourism in San Francisco?
