Mural Sketch Selection Meeting – Wed. June 16th!

All are welcome to join OPDC and MLK at the Oakland Community Mural Sketch Selection Meeting!

When: Wednesday, June 16, 2010
Peoples Oakland (3433 Bates Street, 2nd Floor)

Oakland Planning and Development Corporation (OPDC) is partnering with Moving the Lives of Kids (MLK) Community Mural Project this summer to create a mural on the exterior wall of Sorrento’s Pizza Roma on Atwood Street to celebrate the Oakland community.

After our community input meeting on May 19th, MLK asked local artists to produce sketches for what the mural could look like based on your ideas. At the June 16 meeting, artists will present the sketches they’ve designed for the mural.

We need YOUR INPUT again to select a sketch for the mural in order for it to truly reflect our neighborhood.

Once a final sketch is selected, OPDC and MLK will recruit Oakland youth to paint the mural in July!
