Portrait of the entrance to my college, San Francisco Art Institute. Oh I miss it. At the time, and it may still be, it was one of only 3 purely fine art colleges in the US. Nobody seems to know when or who built this old part of the school. Just inside the courtyard and to the left is the main gallery which has a fresco painted by Diego Rivera in 1932.
