About the Grant

$28,000 to support First Element (MAP 2010), a new piece that explores the history of street art in San Francisco's Mission District.

About the Project

Lead artist Sean San Jose brings together musicians, dancers, and mural-, street-, and graffiti-artists to create an iconoclastic exploration of Mexican mural painting, Surrealism, Pop, and Conceptualism combined with underground comics, spray-can art, stencils, and graffiti. Set in the Mission District, this piece proposes street art as a vibrant form of social and political activism and a powerful form of aesthetic innovation. First Element will include public visual and performance art pieces, a gallery exhibition, and a full-length performance piece.
