Having Risen, Bayview Beacon Ready To Shine
Bayview Rise, a mural by Haddad | Drugan which rises 187 feet on the façade of Pier 92's grain elevator will be officially illuminated and animated on February 26 at 5:30 PM.
Situated near Third Street as it crosses Islais Creek and conceived as a gateway into the Bayview neighborhood, the mural's large-scale graphics make its primary images visible from a distance. And at night, both the mural and adjacent silos will be illuminated.
Funded and commissioned by the Port of San Francisco with coordination from the San Francisco Arts Commission, Bayview Rise is one of the Blue Greenway projects in the works, a series of interconnected waterfront parks and art installations along the bay.

Something similar should be done at the PG&E substation on Folsom and Fremont. Cool!

Very kool. It's about time SF started adding Art to it's skyline.
This can be seen from Hwy 280, the Bayview and Portero Hill....it's really going to change that old industrial wasteland into something special.

I saw this the other night from 280, and I wondered what it was. Nice idea.
