Citizens, “Question Time” for Supervisors: Will we allow another five years of that tacky tourist store inside Coit Tower? Our beloved WPA art gallery has been held hostage by Recreation & Park’s vulgar insult of crass commercialism for 30yrs. For the first time, our tasteless gardeners must ask our Supervisors for a 5 to 10 year lease extension to hawk trinkets within this 1934 artistic treasure.
SFArts Commission, the legal caretakers, admits that only our Mayor or Supervisors can Save Coit.
San Franciscans, contact your supervisor. Socially, we should invite National Parks Department: costumed, fluent guides teaching the world of the politically turbulent ‘30’s, thus providing irrefutable protection from the ever-present and indelible graffiti on these frescoes.
No Asian trinket outlet or hot dog vendor can provide that!
In 1998, I successfully nominated Coit a National Historic site to pressure City Hall to transfer concession rights from the negligent Recreation & Parks to any Educational 501c3 demonstrating respect for our heritage.
Coit must teach the world how we proud San Franciscans persevered the onslaught of poverty, hobos & Okays, Hitler-mania, and socialism in USA – 5 years along into the protracted Great Depression#1.
Please contact Supervisors = Greed versus heritage.
