This gorgeous and profound mural is located on Lakeshore avenue under the 580 overpass. It’s nestled between my favorite movie theater (The Grand Lake Theater, which never shows commercials and still hosts it’s wurlitzer organist on Friday and Saturday nights) and my favorite farmers market, the incredible Grand Lake Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm.
I was unable to find any history on the mural other than the painted inscription which states it was painted by Susan Greene, Meera Desai, students from Westlake Junior Highschool, members of Project YES and the East Bay Conservation Corps, with funding from the California Department of Conservation, EBRPD, and a MLK Jr. Grant.
If anyone has more information, please send me a comment.
I don’t know If I said it already but …Excellent site, keep up the good work. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂
A definite great read..Jim Bean

Thanks for sharing! I love that mural and living in a city that has such thoughts prominently expressed in public spaces for our frequent consideration. I stumbled across your blog when I was searching for the exact wording for my own posting. Have a look here if you are interested:
