SF Murals - San Bruno Launderland / Art In Progress

Another work-in-progress I stumbled across on the wall of the local Launderland Coin-Op, located at 2246 San Bruno Avenue in SF Apparently, it was sponsored by the Portola Neighborhood Steering Committee.

Background: The PNSC applied for a capital improvement grant to paint a mural on behalf of the property owner of Launderland, 2444 San Bruno Avenue. This wall is constantly tagged with graffiti. Even though the property owner does paint over it very often, we thought it would be great to have something there to beautify the neighborhood and deter graffiti.  The property owner was award the grant and we have hired Fiona Glas, a muralist, to paint a mural on the 25 ft by 10 ft blank wall on Launderland.

Next time I visit Portola Neighborhood, I'll try to post the completed mural
