Paint the Void, a San Francisco project to paint murals on boarded-up storefronts during the coronavirus pandemic, is currently featuring the work of Amos Goldbaum, who drew inspiration from a group of mask wearers in Milll Valley during the flu epidemic of 1918.
Goldbaum’s mural will be on display on Mission Street near Valencia Street until the boards come off the windows, at which point they will be cleaned up and go to the winners of a charity auction. Goldbaum is also selling prints of the murals, with “100% of the proceeds from the auctioned murals and prints going to the SF-Marin Food Bank to support those in need,” he says.
You can view the original November 1918 photo here courtesy the Mill Valley Library.
