An unassuming brick wall on the 1100 block of Ocean Avenue is getting a makeover this weekend with a mural.

Paid for by District 7 Participatory Budgeting funds and approved by the San Francisco Arts Commission, the nonprofit First Amendment’s lead muralist Antoine Marnata will place “Ingleside Wildflowers” on a neglected PG&E substation wall. (Disclosure: This journalist organized the mural.)

The mural is inspired by a postcard from the 1800s depicting the neighborhood before it was developed. It’s expected to be completed on Sunday, Sept. 27, Marnata said.
