Murals: Georgetown -1, Beacon Hill +1

I wrote a few days ago about how it looks like the Georgetown Graffiti Wall is being painted over to make way for a Pabst advertisement.

Well, today a Beacon Hill resident e-mailed me to let me know that the Kusina Filipina people at Beacon and Hanford have commissioned a new mural. He posted photos of it on his remodel blog.

I drove by today and took a look at this work in progress. Pretty!

That is gorgeous and makes me a little homesick for Philly.

I love this. Awesome.

I'm a little jealous that you're getting gorgeous flowers and while we're stuck with cheesy beer ads.

This is so cool! One of the guys working on this mural lives in the neighborhood and pitched the idea to the restaurant owners. Kudos to the owners for going ahead with the project and paying for it. Let's just cross our fingers that it won't get tagged with the gang graffiti that's popping up more on the hill.
