This peace wall is in Jack London Square. It is composed of tiles created by Oakland school children under the guidance of local artists. As best I can determine, it was done in 1998. There are actually two walls of tiles, which line steps that move down toward the waters of the estuary. The steps used to lead up to a Barnes & Noble, which suddenly closed up shop two years ago. No new tenant has yet come forward.
