THE STORY:

The PAW POWER! Mural Project unites local artists, art students, and youth to improve and beautify Oakland Animal Services (OAS) through the creation of indoor and outdoor murals that reflect the positive and loving spirit of the shelter and its animals, staff, and dedicated volunteers.

OAS is the city’s only open admission shelter, taking in all of Oakland’s homeless, injured, and mistreated animals. It is our municipal shelter and with community participation it can be an outstanding animal welfare facility. Several artists have committed to creating murals at the site in order to showcase the shelter animals in a new light with the important goal of boosting adoptions. By infusing the shelter with uplifting imagery and gallery-quality artwork, the shelter will be more lively, and visitors and potential adopters will see the animals as happy pets. It is important to dispel the myth that shelter animals are defective (or worse, disposable) when in fact they are simply in need of a new family.

The PAW POWER! Mural Project celebrates Oakland’s nationally recognized art scene by connecting OAS with local artists and connecting artists with Oakland’s four-legged citizens in a meaningful, long-lasting way. The artists that are participating in the first round of PAW POWER! are Claire Brees, Renee Castro, Nancy Mizuno Elliott, Claude Förster, the Illuminaries, Russel de Leon, Robert Minervini, Laurel Nathanson, David Polka, and Michael Wertz.

Your donation may be tax deductible and will go toward art materials, prepping and installation costs, and artist stipends. It costs approximately $500 to create one 50 sq foot mural, so the more donations we receive, the more murals can be created. The painting of the murals is currently in progress with the bulk of the supplies being donated by the artists; however to continue and expand the project, we need additional funding. Your donation will support PAW POWER! Mural Project-Round One, which is taking place this summer and fall with an artist reception scheduled for January. Art encourages dialogue, connection, and can, in this case, truly save lives. Thank you for supporting PAW POWER! Mural Project.
