Artists to restore Women's Building mural in SF

SAN FRANCISCO

The mural, located at the intersection of 18th and Valencia streets, was painted in 1994 and depicts the historical contributions of women around the world, according to the Women's Building.

With the support of the local nonprofit SF Beautiful, the preservation of the mural is now in full swing.

Local contributions through fundraising efforts have totaled $100,000, and the artists who painted the murals will be climbing scaffolding to touch up their designs, according to SF Beautiful.

The muralists plan to work on the project on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, officials from the nonprofit said.
