Monday Mural: Love Music Arts

This massive mural celebrates the arts community of Oakland and especially the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts, which can be seen in the background.  The Center offers a diverse selection of arts and martial arts classes and is named after an honored Congolese dancer, drummer , and teacher who died in a tragic car accident in 2003. I'm showing you only one section of the mural; the rest will be shown next week.  The mural is a collaboration of many Oakland artists and was funded through foundations and city programs.
