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.
