Take a tour of the Mission murals through the eyes of young poets. Our 4th & 5th grade students at Sanchez Elementary worked with WritersCorps teaching artist Annie Rovzar to create this pocket-sized book. In a city and neighborhood increasingly threatened by the cultural erasure that is gentrification, these poems — in conversation with the artworks that inspired them — bear witness to the historical and cultural roots of the Mission. A map is included should you want to take a walking tour of the murals. Available now at our online store and at local businesses.
WritersCorps was honored by First Lady Michelle Obama with a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award. Learn more about the award and hear the First Lady speak about the importance of arts education.
