Play reading: Painting Coit Tower
Reading of scenes from new play about the Coit Tower murals and the artists who painted them
With Jon Golinger, founder of Protect Coit Tower
“What do powerful men fear most? Honest questions from free minds. Brush fresh paint on a blank slate – who knows what you may find?” So says artist Bernard Zakheim in a scene from “Painting Coit Tower,” a new play that tells the amazing story of the Coit Tower murals – how they came to be and why they remain just as meaningful today as when they were painted 83 years ago. Scenes from the play will be read in an informal setting at the Canessa Gallery, located on the very block of Montgomery Street where the Coit Tower mural story begins.
