This morning San Francisco’s Department of Public Works, along with a team of volunteers from Green Connect and San Francisco Community Clean Team painted over the popular graffiti and street art at Warm Water Cove aka Toxic Tire Beach in Dogpatch near 3rd and 24th Streets. All that is left now is a dark green wall.
As Dav notes, this location has been home to many events in the San Francisco art scene, including the La Contessa Burial at Sea earlier this year as well as legendary Popcorn Anti-Theater performances, just to name a few. Dive Bar even had their Tasting Labs event there a couple of years ago.
Here’s more coverage from Chicken John, SFist, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner and Graffiti Archaeology News is keeping an updated list of blogs and media covering this story.
Dav has started a Warm Water Cove discussion group to help address this situation.
