San Francisco is home to artistically diverse murals painted by famous artists, alongside creations by residents. Murals improve the visual quality and experience in our public spaces and are a platform for artists.
Below provides an outline of approvals and permits needed to implement a mural project. For all murals, the property owner must consent to installation. Additional considerations before implementing a mural project include: insurance / hold harmless release, art copyright authorization / release, community outreach, materials, and long term maintenance responsibilities.
