Precita Eyes Murals As A Collaboration Form Of Art San Francisco, California
Precita Eyes Muralists Association was founded in 1977 by Susan and Luis Cervantes who had come to the Bay Area several years before and started a family. Susan Cervantes herself had been inspired by "Las Mujeres Muralistas," the first all-women group of collaborative muralists from which she applies her strategy of collaborative, accessible, community art.

The name of the organization comes from the fact that most of the muralists were from Precita Valley. Precita is a diminutive form of the Spanish word "presa," which means dam; the word "Precita" means little dam. The "Eyes" in the name are what we perceive the visual world with, our own eyes.[from wikipedia]
