Welcome to the project page for the Treasure Island Community Mural, which was completed in early 2019!  You will find information here about the Community design and visioning process, San Francisco Arts Commission mural design review and approval process, and the painting of the Community Mural on the exterior wall of Treasure Island Gymnasium. 

The Treasure Island Community Mural engagement, development, design and painting processes was led by Precita Eyes Muralists, a San Francisco non-profit community based mural arts organization.  Click here to learn more about Precita Eyes Muralists.

Step 1: Community Mural Design and Planning Workshop - August 25, 2018

A Community Design and Planning Workshop was held on Saturday August 25th, 2018 at the Ship Shape Community Center on Treasure Island, providing a forum for the Island community to contribute ideas, designs, themes and sketches in a collaborative environment.  The output of this Workshop guided the ultimate Community Mural design.  Precita Eyes artists synthesized the ideas, concepts and themes generated by the community during this Workshop into research and development of images and then completed a scale Treasure Island Community Mural design in full color with a narrative description of the content of the mural images and story. 

Thank you to all Community Members who participated in the August 25th Design and Planning Workshop!
