New Public Art for San Francisco’s Tenderloin Neighborhood


By thesanfranciscoegotist / /

Boutique hotel, Cova Hotel, is unveiling of an 8-story high mural at 655 Ellis Street in the Tenderloin neighborhood – painted by students from the Academy of Art’s School of Fine Art.

On Thursday, July 12, at 5:30 p.m. a free community reception will take place at the hotel as the scaffolding is removed and new lighting is turned on to reveal the mural to the public.

Owner Simon Sin chose to partner with Academy of Art University and its mural painting class after he was impressed with its collaborative mural project at the PG&E substation on the same block. And this isn’t the first time Mr. Sin has chosen Academy students to help beautify his properties. Earlier in the year, he tasked them to produce a mural at a new hostel, which is currently undergoing renovation on Franklin Street.
