The SFUSD board voted to paint over all of Victor Arnautoff’s murals—all 13 scenes, not just those objected to—at an estimated cost of $600,000. The vote was unanimous.
We will attend the SFUSD's board of education meeting on tonight, at 6 o’clock, at 555 Franklin Street (between Fulton and McAllister). We want to strongly protest their proposal to whitewash or cover the magnificent Victor Arnautoff murals that now grace George Washington High School’s walls. As part of San Francisco's vibrant art community, we adamantly demand these murals be preserved and enhanced with lighting and signage so they remain a treasure for all to experience.
If you’re able to attend with us, please do.
