Megan Wilson’s new mural on Clarion Alley:
TAX THE RICH
Clarion Alley Mural Project
Clarion Alley, San Francisco, CA
Wilson painted the mural on San Francisco’s Clarion Alley in July/August 2013 during the 2013 America’s Cup hosted in San Francisco and sponsored by Louis Vuitton, each an emblem of wealth and excess. Capitalizing on this convergence of affluence, she used the classic Louis Vuitton brown as the background, the highly recognizable SF Giants colors for the text, and added Louis Vuitton artist/designer Takashi Murakami’s floral smiley faces to her own iconic flowers.
