Artistic Liberals Give Pro-Life Billboard in Bernal Heights a Political Makeover

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2012 at 1:30 PM

Bernal Heights is well-known for its rabble-rousing and artistic abilities (remember the life-size drawings of Brian Wilson that popped up through the quirky hamlet?)

The fun folks over there are also known for getting their point across.

As first spotted by Bernalwood, some "hackers" saw this political billboard on Cortland Avenue and decided it was in need of a major redesign. Have a look:

And perhaps after a late night of drinking at the Wild Side West?

Just think of it as free beautification.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
