    The intensity of the magical feeling of floating above the canvas as my feet were planted firmly upon the ground was created by the depth of the Paintings presence.Viewing them up close and personal the color washed over me leaving me mesmerized and in a state of awe. One of the Best Art Shows I have see here in Beautiful San Francisco.

    One of our 10 great places to play a trick on the eye, this piece shows skyscraper construction, with architects, laborers and a muralist, likely Diego Rivera.

    Walk further down when you've seen the mural to discover a great view of SF bay!

  • Pete I. on 04/09/12

    Check out the great view from Pete's Cafe. Enjoy the fish pond in the courtyard, view the Diego Rivera mural, Walter McBean Gallery, and look out for ghosts coming from the tower, it's art school too
