Thanks for the shout-out, Joe. This is a new gem in Burlingame, made possible by lots of volunteer hours, and generous funding by Dewey Land Co.


This is really a great addition to Burlingame! It is a gift to our community.Thank you to all who made it happen!

Nice coverage in the Daily Journal: https://www.smdailyjournal.com/news/local/greetings-from-burlingame/article_2ec293a8-8fc7-11e8-b373-0f50b704a7b1.html


Special shout out to Don Donoughe who put in countless hours designing this very special piece of work.


Really spectacular. Thank you for getting this done.


In case you missed it in the Merc, John Horgan has done a quick history of B'game's beginnings and the move to get a bust of Dear Old Anson into the library. You can read it here:


It Don't Come Easy

Seems to be 2 tiles missing.I hope it wasn't vandalism?


Nope --no vandalism. Two sky blue tiles (only two!) were broken during installation (from nearly 3,200 pieces.) They were very carefully glued together for the unveiling so that the work would look perfect. The actual replacements take several weeks to replicate and are color matched, so those two had to come out and be sent back to Florida where they are produced and fired. Eventually the new ones will be complete and glued back in-- but yeah, I hope vandals respect the work and leave it pristine.

 It Don't Come Easy

My faith in humanity has been restored (for now)! Thank you for the update Jennifer.


Some of my neighbors told me they want to have this as their Christmas card. Great idea. If you do, don't forget to #greetingsfromburlingame.

Thank you Don Donoughe for the design and countless hours devoted to the mural. You are the best!

Bruce Dickinson

Wowowow!!! Guys, dynamite job!! As you all know, Bruce Dickinson is steeped in cumulative knowledge of art and design, and I gotta tell ya, this mural is what I call an instant classic!

Captures the essence of Burlingame in a beautiful and timeless way! I love love love the tiles! Also great job getting a developer to really contribute to the community for change. I hope our elected and city officials are taking very good notes!
