Bayview Rise is an illuminated mural on an abandoned 187 ft. tall grain elevator that marks the northern entry to San Francisco?s Bayview District. The Bayview has been the home of San Francisco's shipyards, slaughter houses, manufacturing, sewage treatment and the power plant. It has also been characterized by social and environmental injustice, unemployment and urban decline. But the community has hopes for the future. At one community meeting, a 96-year old activist likened the Bayview to a balloon "waiting for someone to put some more air in and blow it up." This metaphor became the touchstone for the mural's design, one that weaves together imagery rooted in the Bayview's history and future aspirations. At night, different colored lights cause parts of the mural of that same color to be highlighted while other colors recede into the dark background. This kinetic "illumination animation" abstractly represents a neighborhood in transformation, ready to rise.
