College Hill / Bernal Cut Path Mural Project

We're pleased to announce the College Hill mural project, which will brighten the cinderblock DPW building at 3600 Mission Street in Bernal's College Hill neighborhood while acting as wayfinding for College Hill and the Bernal Cut Path

There are three mural concepts, and you can see all of them below—as mockups on the building's three sides. (Please keep in mind that these are concept images and not the exact final paintings.) We'll soon hold a community meeting to discuss the three designs, and then we'll ask the community to vote by ranking the designs. The mural concept with the most votes will be elevated to the SF Arts Commission for City approval.

Funding for this project is thanks to a grant from the Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development; this grant was awarded to the College Hill Neighborhood Association and fiscal partner Independent Arts & Media.

When you're captivated by a beautiful moment or event, you may say "Oooo" out loud as that discovery gets your attention.

For Love

This design is about seeing yourself in the "other" and about the nature of Love and Freedom as a delicate and precious thing.

The Arrow of Time

A look at entropy, or the tendency of things moving toward disorder and unpredictability. At the mouth of the bottle is the current moment and moving from it is every other moment. It is one of the fundamentals of our universe that allows for discovery.
