Women’s Strife Upheld in Mural Restoration

August 1, 2012

The iconic and historic “Maestrapeace” mural that adorns the Women’s Building in San Francisco’s Mission District will soon be restored to its original glory, thanks in large part to a recent surge in grant funding from the City and County of San Francisco and SF Beautiful.

The San Francisco Women’s Center received a total of $60,000 in July, nearly half the funds needed to complete the $130,000 restoration project.

The “San Francisco Seven” – the seven female artists who completed the mural 19 years ago – will use scaffolds to restore the mural’s vibrant reds and yellows using an acryloid seal to ensure longevity while combating graffiti as well as discoloring due to aging and weather.
