Lower Polk has a new mural on Hemlock Alley well worth the visit. Six local artists adhering to the theme, “San Francisco – Its History and Its Diversity,” created a 140 foot mural, helping to transform Hemlock Alley from a back street to a vibrant, enlivened place that pays tribute to the culture of the city.

The Lower Polk Neighbors, in collaboration with the Lower Polk Community Benefits District, the San Francisco Office of Workforce and Economic Development, Chevalier Partners, and Interstice Architects, will showcase the new six-panel community mural on Hemlock Alley between Polk and Larkin Streets at a mural unveiling celebration on Sept. 7, from 3–6 p.m. The ceremony will include a performance by renowned Senegalese performer Ousseynou Kouyate and a brief speaking program featuring contributing artists, Supervisor Aaron Peskin, and others.
