Fruitvale Village ~ teeming with mosaics

I don’t have much to say about the mosaics at Fruitvale Village, other than, if you have not been there, you should go.  My pictures do not do them justice, as they must be examined in person to truly appreciate the number, size, and breadth of designs incorporated.

    Very cool! I’ve been through Fruitvale Village many times to and from BART, but I’ve never stopped to fully appreciate the mosaics. Thanks for pointing them out.
