In 1939, Sargent Johnson undertook several more public art projects, including the WPA-sponsored renovation of the San Francisco Maritime Museum in Aquatic Park.

There, he produced a mosaic mural, depicting marine life on the promenade deck facing the Bay, in various shades of green, black and white.
