Completed in the fall of 2022, Cece Carpio’s mural is the newest in the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Heritage District! SOMA West CBD was there to support celebrating the mural’s completion, tucked away in an ally on Bryant Street. The mural is worth seeking out. Cece Carpio is a talented local artist whose work can be seen all over the Bay Area. This gorgeous mural, in particular, features familiar and popular modes of public transportation- Jeepneys and Muni buses and inter-generational Filipinos of the diaspora navigating both worlds of the Philippines and San Francisco. The community event featured Filipino treats and speeches by the artist and community members.
Large groups from the Filipino Education Center Galing Bata came through, as well as seniors from the community and everyone in between, making it a truly multigenerational celebration.
SOMA West CBD Ambassador Edwin Moore was there to help ensure everything went smoothly. Check out the amazing photographs courtesy of SOMA Pilipinas and photographer Sean Santos!
