Women's Building Mural
The colorful mural that covers this building, Maestrapeace, portrays famous women of the last century. Images include Georgia O'Keefe and Audre Lord. Ten San Francisco artists and 80 female volunteers, some of them local schoolchildren, painted this mural in 1994. Not only is this most colorful mural in The City, it is also the largest. It is also, and this almost goes without saying here in the progressive Bay Area, a masterpiece of political correctness done in a disarmingly naive style.
Having traveled back to the U.S. after 10 years in South Africa, my friend and I came upon this gorgeous mural while walking around the Mission neighborhood. It is an unbelievable work of art: 4 stories high, yet full of careful details and all the images are organically integrated so your eye flows from one part to another.
And the women! It moved me so much to see this huge display of all the different roles that women play in the world and thru history.
I would highly recommend anyone seeing this amazing work.
