924 Gilman | Mural Project
In 2010 I got together with Bay Area artist Kaytwo from the WCF crew to organize the 924 Gilman Street Mural Project. The original idea was to create a rotating exhibit of pieces by Bay Area street artists, with Kaytwo handling the logistics for us once the ball was rolling. In spite of the puzzled looks I encountered when discussing the 'Mural Project' with many of the club's volunteers, I went ahead and proposed the project at a monthly membership meeting where it was voted in unanimously. In addition to receiving the club's stamp of approval, I asked for and received money to help kick start the process, i.e. pay for the paint. Unfortunately, the project was never fully realized, but Kaytwo did shoot the above videos documenting its beginnings.
