New Amos Goldbaum Mural Planned for Pinhole Coffee

Rendering of proposed Amos Goldbaum mural

Neighbor Amos Goldbaum is a Bernal Heights treasure. Born-and-raised here in the neighborhood, Neighbor Amos is an artist who creates intricate line-drawings of San Francisco streetscapes. His t-shirts and hoodies have become popular totems of low-key San Francisco cool, and more recently he’s also been doing large-scale murals, such as this one in Noe Valley and a very Bernalicious one inside Coffee Shop on Mission near Precita.

Now Neighbor Amos has joined forces with the fabulous Pinhole Coffee on Cortland to create a mural on Pinhole’s exterior wall, on the corner of Bonview. To help make it happen, they’ve also launched a crowdfunding effort that’s already 70% of the way to its $5000 goal.

Here’s a detail of what the mural will look like:

(That’s 231 Cortland, the current location of Pinhole Coffee, shown on the corner in the foreground, as it looked when the building was home to the Holly Park Meat Market the 1880s. Cuuute!)

Pinhole’s crowdfunding site says:

Pinhole Coffee landed in the “Neighborhood in the Sky” of Bernal Heights, San Francisco on September 12, 2014. Our space is housed at 231 Cortland Avenue, in Max Breithaupt’s former butcher shop/grocery store from the 1880’s.

We are raising money for a mural designed by SF artist Amos Goldbaum. The design is an ode to the original space juxtaposed with modern Bernal Heights. We look forward to working with Amos Goldbaum who was born, raised and currently resides in Bernal Heights.

Let’s do this thing.  You can participate in the crowdfunding effort right here.

  1. great news! I also was thinking since there’s no longer a billboard in the good life parking lot that that could be a good place for a mural as well. Here’s hoping!

  2. I like it!! (Funny that you have the imagery of the 1880s butcher shop in the foreground coupled with the radio tower in the background. Old meets new.)
