New San Francisco mural by Kara Maria


Kara has just completed her first mural — a 10 x 45 foot, hand-painted mural sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission's StreetSmARTs program.


The mural Blue into Black celebrates the vaquita porpoise—the world's smallest and most endangered cetacean, found only in Mexico's northern Gulf of California.


Mural location:

1330 Polk Street at Frank Norris Street

(between Pine and Bush)

San Francisco, CA 94109


With thanks to: Craig Corpora of SFAC for facilitating this project; to Sal Garcia, Mark Maglaty, Enrique Chagoya, and Diane Andrews Hall for production assistance; to Johanna Poethig, and Jason Jagel for advice and support; and to the good people at Precita Eyes Mural Arts Center and Action Rentals.
