To Cause To Remember Mural 1992 & 2013, Artist: Johanna Poethig, Soma Homeless Shelter, 525 5th Street, San Francisco, California

While on vacation in New York in 1992 I was pondering what I should paint on the side of the SOMA homeless shelter. I looked over the water at the Statue of Liberty and thought what would better symbolize our nation's best unrealized intentions than the Liberty, her quote, and the torch out of her hands. Commissioned by the San Francisco Mural Resource Center.[from the artist's website]
