|The Oaksterdam Mural,
Last week, I showed you some murals I found in San Francisco. This week, we go across the bay to Oakland, California to see the Oaksterdam mural.
This is a drive by shot of a big bright mural from Oakland, from a few years ago. I see Oakland’s signature street sign — green with an oak on it. I see Fox Theater. I see ‘bart’ and Lake Merit maybe and some other symbols of the city.
It was only later that I saw there was a ‘university’ below the ‘Oaksterdam.’ So I looked it up and learned that Oaksterdam University is a Cannabis university – the first of it’s kind in the US. Now I’m sure you’ll want to know more about it, if you don’t know about it already. So here is the Wikipedia page for “Oaksterdam University.“
I also learned that this mural was painted over soon after the university moved out of this building. And that means this mural is no more.
