Giant Human Mural “Fukushima is Here” | Ocean Beach
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Ocean Beach Parking Lot | Great Highway and Lincoln Ave., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join nearly 1,000 people to lend your voice (actually, your body) to a massive human mural on the beach with 100-foot-tall letters that will be photographed by helicopter. It’s like a flashmob, but with a great purpose.
This action will let the world know that radioactive contamination from the Japanese nuclear disaster at Fukushima which is reaching our shores on the West Coast.
What to Expect:
On October 19th, hundreds of people will align their bodies to create a human mural spelling out “FUKUSHIMA IS HERE” and then be photographed from the air by helicopter. Please arrive in the vicinity by 10:45 a.m. Helicopter overhead at noon sharp. Event finished by approx 12:15.
The message will be centered approximately 200 yards north of the intersection of Fulton and the Great Highway, halfway between the Cliff House and the Beach Chalet restaurant (public bathroom in the Beach Chalet’s public lobby). A concrete sea wall runs along the beach, with short, numbered stairways leading down to the sand. The event will be centered near Stairway 12, and will stretch out from there, both north and south.
Participants get a postcard
One image from the event will be made into a large-sized postcard. If you would like one of these postcards mailed to you, you MUST print your address onto a mailing label (provided at the event) and drop it into one of the POSTCARD ADDRESSES buckets that volunteers will be holding.
