One of San Francisco muralist Amos Goldbaum’s signature line drawings may soon grace the exterior of Pebbles Cafe, thanks to the efforts of Bernal Glen resident Amanda Martin.
“This is a project that I have been dreaming about for a very long time,” Martin said. “After many false starts, it looks like we have a very good chance of actually making this happen.”
Martin gauged neighborhood interest in the mural at the 2017 Glen Park Festival, garnering 43 signatures of support. She then looked for a location, finally settling on the side of Pebbles Cafe along Kern Street with the blessing of the Hayes family, which owns the building. To raise the estimated $7,500 needed for materials and Goldbaum’s time, Martin seeded an Indiegogo fundraiser with $3,000 and started to spread the word.
Interested neighbors are encouraged to share the link widely and donate if possible.
“Even $5 helps,” she said. “We hope to start painting in May.”
