Controversial Murals of Rincon Center
(With SF City Guides - by Al Ciabattoni)
Scandalous! Shocking! Revolting! Partisan hysteria echoed from San Francisco to Washington D.C. when these murals were unveiled. Powerful voices called for their destruction, yet 30 years later, the building was saved from demolition. The murals tell many stories, from SF history to Cold War politics. Discover the artistic and political drama behind these treasures.
