Workers Paint Over Student Mural At San Francisco School

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Workers have mistakenly painted over a colorful mural weeks after San Francisco middle school students completed the two-year campus beautification project.

The Buena Vista Horace Mann School mural is now under a coat of yellow primer.

It took two years to plan draw and paint the 200-foot mural.

It featured images of the Golden Gate Bridge, the school’s fire-breathing dragon mascot and monkeys, yellow fish, blue waves and the city skyline.

But a summer work order to paint the school obliterated it.

School administrators are now working with contractors to determine if the paint can be removed to restore the mural.
