The Mission District’s Balmy Alley and Clarion Alley resemble an open-air street-art museum with about 40 murals each; Precita Eyes points you to the finest examples on its walking tours. Huge heads drawn by artist Barry McGee (a.k.a. Twist) can be spotted in the Mission and in local galleries, while artist APEX has a multilayered, colorful work on Turk Street and Mason. Any Diego Rivera fans should head inside the Pacific Stock Exchange to view his masterwork Allegory of California (between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily).
