Murals and the Multi-Ethnic Mission

Second Saturday of every month, 1 p.m. and Fourth Sunday of every month, 1 p.m.
Women's Building 3543 18th St., San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights

, ,
In the beginning it was, of course, Ohlone Indian. Then it was Spanish-Ohlone. Were there Russians? It was Italian. Then it was Irish and German. As far as we can tell, the Mission District was never Chinese, but this is San Francisco, so why shouldn't it have been? It was Mexican, and then it was Salvadoran-Guatemalan-Honduran-Peruvian. All of the above contributed lesbians to the Valencia microclimate. Now, some would say, it's restaurant-hipster. So the San Francisco City Guides walking tour of the beloved, embattled, contradictory, and grimily beautiful area, Murals and the Multi-Ethnic Mission, is well-titled. It tromps through alleys, admires Victorian (is that an ethnicity?) homes, and traces the visual traditions of all these groups and more in the famous and numerous wall paintings — perfect for visiting family and friends, no matter where they're from. 415-557-4266

Precita Eyes Mission Trail Mural Walks

Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.

, ,
Mural people are nuts. Wall paintings never last and can't be purchased, and the people who go specifically to see them are often the hoi polloi who know nothing about art. How can muralists expect to survive in the art world? The answer: They don't. The folks who make their work on outdoor surfaces tend to be little-D democrats who love the idea of art for art's sake, who like bringing joy to all kinds of passersby, from tiny stroller inhabitants to seniors whose gait may give them more time than anyone to appreciate what's right in front of them. The weekly Mission Trail Mural Walks give you, whatever your age and whatever the state of your art education, a chance to see the pieces that famously decorate the Mission District with a guide who can answer your questions, even if yours is, "Don't these people know they're never going to make any money doing this?" 415-285-2287

The Marsh San Francisco presents the World Premiere of "Who Killed Sylvia Plath," written by award-winning playwright Lynne Kaufman and starring Lorri Holt. Poet Sylvia Plath returns to her burial place in West Yorkshire, England to view the fourth replacement of her tombstone. The previous ones have been defaced by feminists who chiseled off her married name, claiming it was Ted Hughes who caused Sylvia Plath’s death. Did Hughes kill Plath? Was her suicide at age 30 a “good career move”? Would she do it again? And what does it say to us today? 415-282-3055
