29 Aug: 10am Mural Premiere (SF, CA)
Please join me (Russell) and Chris Benfield at our new mural tomorrow morning from around 10am until noon. The indoor mural is located at 1150 Ocean Ave. (at Lee Ave.). You can take public transportation to get there: MUNI: 43, 49, KT ... BART: Balboa Park Station (walk up hill towards Phelan)
The 1,800 square foot mural includes around 100 hand cut stencils, and depicts a pre-European San Francisco peninsula full of animals, plants and insects. Beginning with an eastern scene over the San Francisco Bay, the mural stretches down the corridor, passing Twin Peaks, Lake Merced, oak groves, and the Sand Dunes and wildflowers of the mural's location, and into the Pacific.
Chris and Russell will have sprayed stencils on bristol paper for sale at tomorrow morning's premiere. All proceeds will go to the Center for Biological Diversity, an organization that tirelessly protects endangered plants and animals in the USA.
There will also be an evening premiere at the mural, held in early September.
