Public Coyote Mural/Collage in San Francisco

I think this is fabulous! It’s a large public mural/collage which sits above street level, one story up, and can be seen coming down Divisadero Street. I went into the building, Seniore’s Pizza, to ask about it, and was told simply that a group of young adults approached the building owner and asked if they could get up on the roof to make this, and they were given permission to do so. This happened about two years ago. The owner of the pizzeria did not know their names, and my inquiry to the landlord was never answered, so we’ll have to call it “anonymous” unless someone steps forward. In the meantime, enjoy the artwork, and if you are in San Francisco, drive South down Divisadero Street, you’ll see it on the right hand side at #559 Divisadero.

    That is really cool. I guess I don’t drive south on Divis often enough. I’ve never noticed it. Hope you can get a response regarding the artist!
