A new Coit Tower exhibit is open at the Canessa Gallery in North Beach. It features a collection of rare photographs of the 25 artists who painted the Coit Tower murals 80 years ago. Jayne Oldfield Blatchly, the daughter of muralist Otis Oldfield, was present at a preview to talk about her father’s mural and the artworks in general. In this photo, taken Friday, she is looking at a photo of her father painting one of the murals on a canvas in his studio. Oldfield Blatchly was joined at the gallery Friday by Jon Golinger, president of the National New Deal Preservation Association as well as the chair of Protect Coit Tower. Coit Tower first opened to the public Oct. 12, 1934.
