CARNAVAL MURAL:

Consideration to Recommend to the Board of Supervisors (BOS) designation of the Carnaval Mural on north elevation of 1311 South Van Ness Avenue as an individual Article 10 Landmark pursuant to Section 1004.2 of the Planning Code. Initiation of landmark designation of the Carnaval Mural was introduced by Supervisor Ronen and adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 28, 2023 (See BoS File No. 230299).

The Carnaval Mural, painted in 1983 by muralist Daniel Galvez and several other artists, depicts the Mission’s iconic Pan-Latino businesses and cultural institutions along with people dancing and celebrating Carnaval on 24 th Street.

The Carnaval Mural celebrates Latin music and culture in the Mission District and is representative of the Community Art Movement, or Mission Muralismo, a significant and vibrant part of San Francisco’s cultural heritage. The HPC will consider recommendation of the landmark designation to the BOS.

If recommended by the HPC, the designation will be considered for adoption by the BOS at a future public hearing.

CHATA MURAL:

Consideration to Recommend to the Board of Supervisors (BOS) designation of the Chata Gutierrez Mural on west elevation of 3175 24th Street as an individual Article 10 Landmark pursuant to Section 1004.2 of the Planning Code.

Initiation of designation of the Chata Gutierrez Mural was introduced by Supervisor Ronen and adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 28, 2023 (See BoS File No. 230300). The mural, painted in 2015 by Carlos “Kookie” Gonzalez and other artists, depicts the late Chata Gutierrez, KPOO’s first Latina DJ and host of Bay Area’s longest-running Latin music program, surrounded by dancers and conga players.

The Chata Gutierrez Mural, tribute to a cultural icon of the Latinx community, celebrates the Latin Music Movement and is representative of the Community Art Movement, or Mission Muralismo, a significant and vibrant part of San Francisco’s cultural heritage. The HPC will consider recommendation of the landmark designation to the BOS.

If recommended by the HPC, the designation will be considered for adoption by the BOS at a future public hearing.
