THE PIECE OF ARTWORK I LOVE: The Market Street Railway Mural by Mona Caron (2004)

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS PIECE? It’s one of my favorite murals in San Francisco — every time I walk by I have to stop and look at it. It’s a great piece of storytelling, and I think it’s nice to raise people’s awareness of it.

HOW DID YOU DISCOVER IT? The first time I saw it was after having drinks at Lucky 13, and I walked past it. I just stopped in awe. It was such a happy discovery.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT? There’s so much going on. It uses Market Street as a timeline to tell the story of San Francisco, offering little slices of history, from protests to parades. Every time I look at it I see something new.

Where: 300 Church St. (at 15th Street), San Francisco

Note: “1000 Journals,” a documentary based on artist Someguy’s experiment in which he released 1,000 blank journals into the world, screens at the Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St., this week.
