A Muni Metro’s Alternate Art Universe
The other day, we posted some art of the 15-Third line (aka, the “15-Fisherman Warf”). Lest we forget about the Metro, reader Carina sent us this image above, explaining:
I took this picture in the Sunset the other day – the Muni logo is clearly visible!
Indeedily, I love how you can identify the Muni worm from a mile away. I’m a little worried about the red-bootied person hanging out of the window, though.
And, yes, we know Metro LRVs don’t cross Haight and Ashbury, but I’m OK with some artistic freedom.
The old mural that was on that wall also used to have a Muni LRV on it
Someone should take a screengrab of that before Google’s camera car does another drive by.
The mural above the El Toreador restaurant in West Portal has not one, but THREE Muni LRVs depicted. (An homage to the K, L, and M which all pass through the neighborhood, no doubt.)
It’s a great piece of artwork.
The proportions of the streetcar in the painting remind me of a european meter-gauge streetcar. (Tall and narrow because the streets are narrow.)
