> DESCRIPTION

Alternavistas represents a Spanglish term; properly spoken in Spanish, it would be Vistas Alternativas, or in English, Alternative Views.  In San Francisco's Mission District, Spanglish is an acceptible language, with the line between the two blurring on the streets of this largely Latino neighborhood.  Alternavistas was a multiple-media show of surreal and fantasy art by five California emerging artists, on view at Back to the Picture from August 23 to September 13, 2008.
