A Mission 0617(2)

Join Dick Evans, author of The Mission, for a talk at the South San Francisco Public Library. If you have ever walked through San Francisco’s historic Mission District, you’ve surely seen the colorful murals that pepper the streets of this dynamic, culturally rich neighborhood. But have you ever wondered what the story is behind each image?

Open to members and non-members.

Dick Evans became interested in photography as a graduate student at Stanford University and continued his practice throughout a forty-seven-year career in the global metals industry that took him all over the world. San Francisco always remained home base, though, and he now lives in the city with his wife, Gretchen. Evans is the author of the photography book San Francisco and the Bay Area: The Haight- Ashbury Edition (InTransit Images and The Booksmith, 2011), as well as The Mission (Heyday) and San Francisco's Chinatown (Heyday).
