Restoring an iconic mural and 5 Big Moves.

I learned yesterday during a Pacific Beach mural walk that there are exciting plans to restore San Diego’s most iconic downtown mural!

Artist Kathleen King, co-creator of the America’s Finest City mural in 1989, informed our group that the historic mural’s restoration will be done in conjunction with SANDAG’s San Diego Forward “5 Big Moves” initiative.

As I understand it, the America’s Finest City mural will be a centerpiece for the planned Fifth Avenue trolley station Mobility Hub!

Very cool!

  1. Meaning, “a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol or as worthy of veneration”? Such as the Statue of Liberty? The four immense stone faces of our great presidents on Mount Rushmore? The semi-cyclopsic steel Picasso statue of Chicago’s city center? Well… it’s kind-of. But a lot more understated, and easier to identify with.

  2. The image’s iconicity is its firming of the “America’s Finest City” attribution to our much beloved Pacific coastal paradise. We’re the anchorage of the progressive State of California. If we stand in the shadow of any other such place, we’re possibly second only to Sacramento for historicity and civic beauty.
