Neighborhood residents, Lucy and Randy Glover have proposed a 14 by 70 foot mural at the southern end of the City of Oakland parking lot between Grand and Walker Avenues in Oakland’s Grand Lake neighborhood. The mural, which will feature the Grand Lake Farmers Market at Splash Pad Park with the Grand Lake Theater looming in the background, will both beautify our community and support local art. The muralist, Stefen, is a local artist who recently painted the mural in the Trader Joe’s parking lot on Lakeshore, as well as many others in the East Bay. As residents of the adjacent condo, the Glovers are seeking $6,000 in donations to make their dream a reality.
When outstanding pledges are added to the cash in hand, Lucy and Randy have exceeded their initial goal and donations are no longer being accepted. They are very grateful for the outpouring of support and ask that you stay tuned for an announcement about an unveiling party.
