RINGING SAN FRANCISCO'S FIRST MURAL TO LIGHT * Mission San Francisco de Asis is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco. * Hidden inside it is a mural painted by Ohlone Indian in 1791 under the supervision of Spanish Missionaries. * It is San Francisco’s Oldest Mural yet little is known about it. * This mural has not been in public view for over 200 years. * Ben Wood and Eric Blind rediscovered and digitally documented the mural in 2004. * This project will transform their digital documentation into a physical public mural in the heart of the Mission District. * The project will recreate the 18th century mural as a significant piece of Native American and California history blocks away from the original in Mission Dolores.
