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.

"Maitri" 2001 Precita Eyes Murals As A Collaboration Form Of Art San Francisco, California

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.
