It took approximately four years, the combined work of dozens and dozens of experts, and countless hours of meticulous planning to move Diego Rivera’s Pan American Unity mural from City College of San Francisco to our museum. While the monumental fresco stays with us and awaits its new home in CCSF’s forthcoming performing arts center, our team wanted to give those who see it a chance to share reflections or ask questions about the work.

Share yours below. All memories are welcome, whether you saw the mural five minutes ago in our free-to-see Roberts Family Gallery or have a fond anecdote from decades past. You can also submit your response by using the hashtag #RiveraMuralStories on social media.
