MMFA Artist KARA MARIA has just completed her first mural—a 10 x 45 foot, hand-painted mural sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission’s StreetSmARTs program.
The mural Blue into Black celebrates the vaquita porpoise—the world’s smallest and most endangered cetacean, found only in Mexico’s northern Gulf of California.
