The beautiful new Excelsior Community Mural, installed on the façade of the 4648 Mission Street branch on December 14th, has engendered excitement in the community about the Excelsior’s vibrant past and its limitless potential for future development and improvements in the Persia Triangle, often referred to as “the heart of the Excelsior.”
The 18’ x 16’ photo collage, comprised of historical photos of the district and its residents, is a part of Wells Fargo’s nationwide Community Mural Program. EAG appreciates Wells Fargo’s collaboration with San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority, the San Francisco Public Library, City College of San Francisco, and neighborhood historians and photographers in order to choose photos, images, and maps that illustrate the Excelsior’s rich history.
For more information about the mural and its components, check out the photo key below.
EAG would like to thank Wells Fargo for choosing the branch at Mission Street and Ocean Avenue for one of their installations of art. So far, the Excelsior Branch at 4648 Mission Street is the third in the City to receive an art installation. Wells Fargo has been collaborating with the San Francisco Public Library's San Francisco Historical Photograph Collection, a project of the San Francisco History Center to develop a historically significant collage for the display. The artwork installation is the first of many improvements that the Excelsior Action Group would like to see made at the Persia Triangle, which has been called the "Heart of the Excelsior" by many community members.
BACR CEO Marty Weinstein says, “Both BACR and EAG are committed to engaging parents and families more in their schools and communities. Our partnership with EAG will leverage the individual and collective presence of both parties and open new doors for community building in the Excelsior neighborhood.”
The Excelsior Action Group has transitioned to a new fiscal sponsor, Bay Area Community Resources. EAG is eager to embark on our new relationship with BACR, which currently runs after school programs in 5 Excelsior schools. We have been highlighted on BACR's website in a great news article.
