Peace Wall in the Lower Haight

In the Lower Haight (or Hayes Valley or Western Addition--seriously, can we get a definitive map on our neighborhoods in this city?!), we recently had the Peace Wall commissioned. It's a cute collection of hand-painted tiles affixed to the retaining wall of Koshland Park. Actually, I call it a "park-lette" because it's so small.

The community project is supposed to reaffirm the neighborhood's commitment to peace and love and rainbows and unicorns. I got the impression that kids did the majority of the tiles, but some interesting ones seem to have slipped in. I wanted to share them with you.

Give Bush a Snack
Stop the corruptionIt's all good.

I'm just waiting to see how long it will be until someone sprays graffiti all over it.


Darling Todd, I think it's lovely idea, only in San Francisco. I hope you'll be adding to it and if so we'll be eagerly awaiting your masterpiece. I just know that somewhere you have an artistic bent.
