Community Rejuvenation Project. It is found at 83rd and MacArthur Avenue in East Oakland. Desi WOME (Weapons of Mass Expression hip hop collective) founded the project and is typically involved in the creation of the murals. Amazingly, they seem to throw them up very quickly. I assume lots of planning time is invested prior to the actual painting. CRP firmly believes that murals fight blight and help build stronger communities. Check out his website for more information.
If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme's for
you. Just follow the Linky steps below. You decide what
constitutes a mural. Be sure to link back to this blog and visit
your fellow posters. Looking forward to the murals posted this
week. Once you start looking, it's amazing how many you can find. P.s. It's time, Suzanne.
