Inside Coit Tower, one of my favorites art works in SF, beautiful murals in honor of city life during the 1930s. This is very historic and artistic.

A world treasure! Diego Rivera's last and largest work in the USA. Frescoes Bursting with color and life. A little tricky to locate, but well worth your time and effort! On the campus of City College. If you need help finding the building call 415.452.5188
