2022 Muni Art

Share this:

The 2022 theme, “Streets of San Francisco” is the seventh year that the SFMTA, San Francisco Beautiful and The Poetry Society of America (sponsors of Poetry in Motion®) have collaborated to bring art and poetry to Muni commuters.

The 2022 Muni artists are:

Krithika Sengottaiyan

Artistic interpretations of the San Francisco skyline in front of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin hills, surrounded by water

Richard Louis Perri

Mirror-image artistic portraits of a bearded and beret-capped male figure, possibly Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in salmon and teal colors with a dark blue and purplish background

Sebastian Raphael

An outline of a cable car is flanked by plants. In the background is a sky filled with fluffy clouds, floating open books and trolley wires. A street sign tells us this is the zero block of Russian Hill. Signs on the cable car feature a Muni logo and read "Beautiful San Francisco" and "Russian Hill, Telegraph, Beacon & Chapel Hills".

Steffan Sanguinetti

The Golden Gate Bridge casts a shadow on the Bay. The Marin Headlands and islands appear in the background. A small craft floats on the Bay between the bridge and the shadow.

Tan Sirinumas

A lighthouse sits on top of Fort Point beneath an underspan of the Golden Gate Bridge. Sparks fill the sky behind the arch.

The 2022 Muni poet and poems are:

Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1919-2021), a founder of City Lights, San Francisco, and a beat poet. Muni-Art-featured poems are:

The Changing Light

Recipe for Happiness in Khaborovsk or Anyplace

Populist Manifesto

At the Golden Gate
