Clarion Alley Mural Project’s (clarionalleymuralproject.org) mission is to support and produce socially-engaged and aesthetically innovative public art, locally and globally, as a grassroots community-based organization in San Francisco’s Mission District Throughout its history, CAMP has used public art as a force for those who are marginalized and a place where culture and dignity speak louder than the rules of private property or a lifestyle that puts profit before compassion, respect, and social justice.
