Artist Creates a Chalk Mural on Mount Tamalpais That Depicts the California Mountain’s Destroyed West Peak

In the meditative short film “Mountains Made of Chalk, Fall into the Sea, Eventually,” filmmaker Gary Yost documents as artist Genna Panzarella creates a temporary chalk mural installation on the blustery summit of Mount Tamalpais in the San Francisco Bay Area. Panzarella’s mural depicts the mountain’s West Peak, which was bulldozed during the Cold War to make way for a military base. The plight of the West Peak is the subject of “The Invisible Peak,” a short documentary by Gary Yost and George Daly (we covered that project back in 2014).
