Bayview has a rich cultural heritage and is home to many sorts of artistic expression – including incredible murals that celebrate cultural identity, nature, music, and more. This month, we’re celebrating some of the #beautyinbayview here, and on social.
Candlestick Point State Recreation Area was the site for the first mural in the California State Park System and is one of the largest in San Francisco. Themes of the untitled mural, dedicated Dec. 17, 1982, touched on gardening and the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. It took four months to complete and overlooks the park’s community garden. Designed by five artists and graduate students from San Francisco State University, it is on a 30-foot-high by 100-foot-long warehouse wall two blocks east of the old Candlestick Park site.
