Description

This mural features community scenes in the Excelsior alongside local legends like The Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia who grew up in the neighborhood.

The mural’s designers traced its outline on the wall and gave local children specific instructions on how to paint. A local who witnessed the mural's creation in action said, “It was all done by kids, none of them more than 12. It was really a beautiful sight.”

It was restored in 2014 by Precita Eyes Muralists, Suaro Cervantes and Cory Devereaux. Its restoration was funded by SF Clean City and the Tonelli family.

Location

Central Drug Store

4494 Mission Street, along the building's Santa Rosa Avenue side
