About The Chata Mural Project 


Join the effort to paint a mural of legendary San Francisco DJ Chata Gutierrez in the Mission Dist

rict! Chata gifted us with her salsa show “Con Clave” on radio station KPOO FM 89.5 for over 40 years, influencing our community and the entire Bay Area with her love of music. Chata stuck with us throu

gh thick and thin, providing the soundtrack to our Saturday afternoons while battling her own illness for more than a decade to bring us music from the heart. Mission native and muralist Carlos Kookie Gonzalez painted this beautiful poster for Chata’s fundraiser in 2009 – help us turn it into a public tribute to her spirit. Please share the link to this fundraiser to all your friends, donate as much as you can and spread the word to all those committed to preserving her legacy and our San Francisco culture!
