Bitch, I’m Johanson



This mural was damaged perhaps during the work on Cali Avenue street or on the building. The news racks need to go. Also, there are some serious cracks in the plaster.

I have merging two items, one about the damage to the Chris Johanson mural on Cali Ave in Palo Alto, the second, about a despute 35 miles north regarding proposed public art near Mission district BART, because the headline “Bitch, ….” purportedly violates the transit district’s bylaws or standards.

There’s also a pop song by a famous media age diva with a similar title to my headline, I’m referencing. We go hard or we go home.

Check back to see if I can write my way out of this hole.


Victor De La Rosa proposed public artwork referencing conflict caused by gentrification of San Francisco, and reported by the Chron.


My meatloaf is calling me (3 years later, after seeing a real Chris Johanson show at Altman-Siegel on Minnesota in SF Dogpatch) but here is quick reference photo, a still of video:


the palette is CJesque.
