On June 8 from 12pm to 5pm, San Francisco Mercantile at 1698 Haight Street on the corner of Cole Street, will be the gathering place for the mural unveiling of Laurel's Heart of Womankind painting. There will be live music, delicious refreshments, and a very special exhibit of Laurel's magical, mythical art! Then grab a Laurel Burch Art Walk Map and immerse yourself in her creative vision and sole artistic purpose: to inspire living from the heart ...


THE HAIGHT ASHBURY WHERE LAUREL LIVED, WORKED, AND CREATED HER FIRST ORIGINAL DESIGNS. 

A single parent at 19, she began making her exquisite earrings and necklaces from old coins, bones, and beads to support her two young children Aarin and Juaquim. Laurel's unconventional approach to art and business resonated with the free-spirited ethos of the '60s and '70s. As her creations became bridges to friendships and patrons, collecting Laurel Burch became a cultural phenomenon.
