A note about using this site: MOST IMPORTANTLY! This is not intended to be a guide or a map. It is simply a collection that reflects a moment in time. An important one I believe. Each artist has a section listed alphabetically by last name (see header in black bar above.) Collaborations are listed following the artist sections (by title of the mural.)
I'm Robin Rawlings Wechsler, a photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area with a special love for street art and street photography. I initiated this project just prior to the death of George Floyd. With that event, the "wallscape" of murals, tags and graffiti changed overnight. Hurt, rage, anguish, sorrow spilled out in colors on brick, glass and plywood. I have added new sections, BLM (I, II , and III) to capture the recent images. The goal of this site is to highlight the artists and the Black Lives Matter movement, first and foremost. I stand in awe of the artists featured here, and of the bravery of the people on the front lines fighting for justice. My goal is to preserve their art, stories and "voices" through these photographs.
