Oakland Street Murals

July 31, 2020 - July 31, 2022

Oakland Street Murals

Walking southwest down Broadway toward Kaiser’s downtown Oakland vaccination center, I wasn’t surprised at the prevalence of boarded up buildings. It’s the same all over; business districts stopped cold by COVID-19. The evidence of more than a year’s restriction can color reality in dull, depression gray. (Pantone’s 2020 color of the year?), but the plywood on Broadway has been heavily painted over in bright murals worth witnessing, if not saving for posterity. Populated with the expressive faces of multi-colored characters (some anonymous, some cartoon, some in the news, others historical), the experience is of walking through an enormous contemporary art museum. Many of the works are sanctioned.
