Mission Accomplished

Potrero del Sol Park is sandwiched between Buena Vista Elementary School and a building maintained by San Francisco General Hospital. The city's Recreation and Park Department says that taggers have constantly targeted a wall of the hospital building, which upset residents who frequented the area. The community came together to figure out a solution. The school's PTA found the artist Victor Reyes to compose a mural, and the students competed in a naming contest. The parks department waived the permit fee, the hospital donated paint and scaffolding and navigated the plan through the San Francisco Arts Commission. The "Familia" mural was unveiled at 10AM on Wednesday. [SF Appeal]
