Sutro Elementary School, San Francisco 2010

The teachers requested a geometric mural with each grade taking on a different aspect of geometry - symmetry, figure ground reversal, tessellation, polygons. All the grades in the school participated. At first, it was difficult for some of the student to understand that non-representational shapes could be art. The final result is stunning and no one needed to be convinced of that. It can be easily seen from the 12th Ave side of the school. It consists of 120 6 inch square tiles. Not counting the frame, the mural measures 5 feet high and 6 feet long.
