23 Works of Sidewalk Art in the Bay Area


Art is everywhere, as long as you walk bright-eyed and present through the world. And, yes: even underneath your soles.

There's beauty to be had in this wild, wonderful, weird city around almost every street corner. Be it a splayed mural tucked away in the Mission District, an urban installation erected atop a swath of green space deep within Ingleside; those bits of creativity canvassed on the slabs of sun-warmed concrete lining much of Downtown and beyond. But it's the latter medium—the city's sublime sidewalk art—that's perhaps, San Francisco's most overlooked artistic expression. (Not to mention that a few of these bouts of semi-permanent curbside art even come with tongue-and-cheek nods to pop culture.) Treating your eyes to gaggle of our favorite painted walkways.

Have any images you've taken of your neighborhood street art? Feel free to email us those concrete canvassings at edit@7x7.com with the subject line "Sidewalk Art," and we'll add it to our list.
