THE STORY:

Help create three or more new mosaic garbage can murals in West Oakland! This project is a continuation of a series of artistic trashcans, led by local resident and artist Lena Toney in collaboration with the San Pablo Avenue Revitalization Collaborative (SPARC), West Oakland Mini-Grants, neighborhood resident volunteers, and local community organizations. One new mosaic garbage can will be located on San Pablo Corridor near St. Andrew’s Plaza at 32nd St, in collaboration with the new grocery store People’s Community Market. Another is to be located at Brockhurst and Market Streets working with neighboring partners. The third will be located at a community requested location in the neighborhood. Funds raised by this campaign will cover the cost of design, installation, community engagement and input, and art supplies, including high-quality tiles. The garbage can beautification series began in early 2014 with support for a naturally themed, painted garbage can funded by Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney. Neighbors loved it and requested more, so the project grew to five more painted garbage can murals along Martin Luther King Jr. Way between 25th street and 34th street. The success of these early works inspired Lena to expand her skills and take on additional garbage can murals with tile mosaics. After a crash course in tile mosaics with local garbage can and mosaic master artist Juan Lopez, Lena was empowered to work with neighbors to create four more mosaic garbage can murals along the San Pablo Corridor. These mosaic murals are a source of pride, unity, and delight for many community residents of this often underserved area of West Oakland. Thank you so much for your support in bringing beauty and community pride to the Hoover-Foster neighborhood and surrounding area!
