Lucia Ippolito is the daughter of well-known San Francisco artist Tirzo Araiza, and her stepmother is Juana Alicia, one of the creators of the famed Maestrapeace mural on the San Francisco Women's Building and other iconic works. Lucia worked with her father on Mission Makeover, a mural about gentrification in San Francisco's Balmy Alley, in the heart of the Mission District.  On Saturday, October 13, Lucia and a group of women artists will unveil Women of the Resistance, Balmy's newest mural, with a block party including tables, a DJ, a shamanic invocation, Aztec dancing and live music.  Women of the Resistance also tells a multigenerational story.  Join us to hear Lucia talk about her inspirations, how the mural came together, and the impact of murals on a neighborhood fighting for its survival.
