Mural Unveiling and Hubcap Decorating
The Endangered Species Mural: California Grizzly Bear is ready to come out of hibernation. Friday evening, September 15, 2017, between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. there will be an unveiling of the mural. Location: Degrees Plato, 4251 MacArthur, and the High Street Pharmacy.
The mural has been a joint effort between the Center for Biological Diversity, Laurel District Assocaition and the Laurel Village Association. The mural was co-created by Portland artist Roger Peet, who has coordinated the Endangered Species Mural Project across the country, and Oakland artist Fernando “Rush” Santos, who owns the Laurel District business Beast Oakland and is a teacher at Lazear Charter Academy in East Oakland.
Supporting artist Russell Howze has painted several murals in San Francisco, provides public art tours, and runs the online Stencil Archive. Local students have also been involved to help with the mural project and learn about art, nature, and community.
There is still time to support this effort. Donations accepted at the Bringing an Endangered Species Mural to Oakland.
An added bonus: hubcaps to be decorated. Come see the latest artistic enrichment of the Laurel District.
