Street art has proliferated across the San Francisco Bay Area in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. News outlet, Broke-Ass Stuart, featured a map of the street art that is popping up in San Francisco's public spaces. As the article states, the art is "turning many of [San Francisco's] empty, commercial corridors into actual art walks." The specific map highlights art created by artists involved in the Paint the Void initiative.
