SFMTA Turns Parking Space into Art

Artist Kristin Farr recently partnered with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to create the city’s first on-street mural in a former parking space. After receiving a request from a business owner to create a “bike corral” outside his property, SFMTA proposed adding a mural to the site. Up to 12 bikes can be parked on six racks installed on top of the privately-funded mural. “Streets, buses and parking facilities don’t just help people get where they need to go; they can also be canvases for our vibrant communities,” said Ed Reiskin, SFMTA director of transportation. “We wanted to demonstrate how a simple bike parking space could be more than just that with creativity and the support of local business.”
