Harvey Milk, Gavin Newsom, Nancy Pelosi in Massive SF Mural

Mural

What's being described as "the world's largest mural portrait" is set to be unveiled on Sunday at the Bob Pritikin Mansion in San Francisco's Noe Valley.

Fog City Journal reports: "The colorful mural by acclaimed artist Guy Colwell features Speaker
Nancy Pelosi lancing a Republican elephant; a terminating Governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger patting the back of a grizzly bear; Senator
Dianne Feinstein bearing the California State flag; Mayor Gavin Newsom
performing a same-sex marriage ceremony; former Mayor Willie Brown
brandishing a hanging freshly pressed suit; former Board of Supervisors
President Angela Alioto donning angel wings outside the Porziuncola
Chapel in North Beach (an endeavor Pritikin helped to promote); a
singing former Supervisor Tony Hall; former Supervisor Harvey Milk
holding a Castro Rainbow Flag with former Mayor George Moscone by his
side; actress Marilyn Monroe hugging baseball Hall of Famer Joe
DiMaggio on the back of a giraffe; San Francisco Chronicle legend Herb
Caen; actress Carol Channing; Emperor Norton; Jerry Garcia; topless
stripper Carol Doda; Willie Mayes and Mark Twain, as well as the Zodiac
killer, Jim Jones and Huey Newton – all set against an iconic San
Francisco skyline."

The mural is 50 x 18 ft. The Pritikin mansion (some interesting photos here) is said to be San Francisco's largest.

    Looks very interesting. A nitpicky comment but Wikipedia places the mansion in the Glen Park neighborhood, not Noe Valley.

    I’m sure the families of the victims of the Zodiac killer will love that he is being so “honored”.
