2017 Urban Youth Graffiti Arts Festival | SF

Each year, the Urban Youth Arts Festival sets up about a huge community painting wall in Precita Park for artists of all ages to express themselves, along with music and fun for the whole family. See MCs Gemimac & Ohm-I on the main stage. Other performers include: 
  • Moving Beyond Productions
  • 1Lady
  • Diamond Lung
  • Jamie Z
  • Mix’d Ingrdnts
  • 2nd Floor Samurai
  • Mireya
  • Unlearn the World
  • Old Soul Kollective

Kids art station includes painting, crafts, button-making, hat painting and face painting.

The Precita Eyes Mural Center puts on the event. Every year, 300 to 500 people show up and organizers think that it’s a good way to keep kids out of trouble–given the 200 cans of aerosol paint that are used to make art on the walls, instead of tags on public spaces.

Extra incentive: Typically the best art pieces are auctioned off each year with some being kept and shown throughout the year at galleries.
