Secret Murals

Secret Murals

In the middle of China Town, San Francisco was an abandoned/ill-kept YMCA.On the wall of the main playground type yard of the facility were these Chinese cultural murals. A secret gem due to the fact that most people probably never stopped to notice them in the overgrown, disregarded yard. Earlier this year the YMCA building was renovated, and constructed began on a new building in place of this yard. My first thought was whether they would someone preserve or integrate these murals into the building somehow. Each time I walked by the new building developed further, the new building taking shape. Recently I walked by to see the building finished. The wall and these murals are all but a memory now.
