SF Murals - Mission Wall Dances

Located between 14th and 15th streets, at 1849 Harrison, this mural is a multi-faceted work, covering two sides of one building and a wall of an adjoining building.  The work, entitled, "Mission Wall Dances, Something there is that doesn't love a wall", was completed in September 2002, by Josef Norris, and commissioned by Jo Kreiter of FlyAway Productions. The FlyAway website is worth a visit, because it features photos of the dance performance for which this mural was created as the backdrop. Franco Folini has a nice wide shot showing almost all of the mural here, and here.
