The Market St. Railway Mural in San FranciscoStreet Art // Wednesday, 01 Feb 2012
One of my favorite pieces of public art is The Market St. Railway mural in San Francisco painted by local artist, Mona Caron. The mural displays a 180-degree bird’s eye view of San Francisco’s Market Street from the 1920’s to the distant future. Many of the themes involved are based on actual events including a parade, a mass demonstration, a free-form celebration, and a violent police riot. Located at Church and 15th in San Francisco, we strongly suggest seeing this piece in person to view all the meticulous details.
