Opening Reception

Saturday January 14th, 2012
4pm to 7pm
I-Hotel Manilatown Center, 868 Kearny St., San Francisco CA 94108

Legacy: The Art of Mike “Dream” Francisco honors the life of artist and writer Mike “Dream” Francisco who pioneered the art form of “graffiti” on the West Coast. The exhibition runs from January 14th, 2012 to April 14th, 2012.

About Mike “Dream” Francisco:
Dream rose to fame in the “graffiti” world in the late ‘80s and ‘90s with his artwork in Oakland, CA. He is internationally known for his “graffiti” style that connects art and social justice. Through his life, Dream has inspired many in all age groups, cultures, and nationalities, conveying messages about social consciousness, community, and pride in culture and history on the “West Coast” and regions beyond. On February 17, 2000, Dream was murdered, but his memory remains in the hearts of his family, friends, admirers and the community.

About Manilatown Heritage Foundation:
Our mission is to promote social and economic justice for Filipinos in America by preserving our history, advocating for equal access, and advancing our arts and culture.
