MURALS WE HAVE LOVED AND LOST
Twenty years ago in the Mission, the Lilli Ann mural disappeared overnight to a developer's zeal. Public outcry and a landmark legal decision brought partial redress. But the cycle of mural erasure and community resistance continues today.
Nicknamed "Lilli Ann" for the garment factory it adorned, "Chuy"Campusano's exuberant four-story mural defined the corner of Treat Ave. and 17th Street for 14 years. But on July 25, 1998, it was erased overnight when the building's new owners whitewashed it. Under the Visual Artists' Rights Act, the artist's family later won a precedent-setting settlement.
Murals By Students Around the Bay
From Daly City, Oakland and the Mission, young people's visions of tradition and challenge, the underwater world, and the future of technology, here.
