Vertical Earthquake Could Hit the Mission District, Destroying View of Mural

Plug1 was talking about the “vertical earthquake” problem recently, and while it’s most apparent closer to downtown, the Mission gets its share of little tremors. The latest is a 50-foot luxury condo complex planned for the corner of 18th and Valencia. When the thing goes up, views of the above mural will be obstructed forever. Tomorrow is the final appeal. If you’d care to voice your opposition, aLittleDisplay’sBlog has all the deets. Link. (Via Curbed SF)

    This dude is my neighbor, and a Mission landmark. I don’t know how he was chosen for the picture but he’s an excellent subject for this because he is as much a part of the Mission as the mural is.

    This incredible project by Kari Orvick was a part of Public Art/Intervention Day from a joint juried exhibition by Southern Exposure and Intersection for the Arts. If you are interested in getting involved in the community in general and the Mission in particular, please visit either one of these non-profit, artist run spaces.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
