disrepair. >> reporter: the renovations cost $1.7 million paid for through a ballot initiative nay san francisco voters approved in 2012. the most intricate work of restoring the murals depict scenes of life in california. the first publicly sponsored art in the country. >> i would like people to realize when these murals were panted, how much time has gone by, and yet how prophetic so many of the murals are. >> okay, anne makovec reporting there. there is a fee if you want to ride the elevator to the top. i highly recommend the elevator because the stairs take a long time. especially on a hot day. if you are going up there, bring a water bottle. >> maybe an ipod. >> it will be a long trip up there. all around the bay area, we have record breaking temperatures as high pressure is sitting overhead now. sunshine all the way to the
