For Monday Mural: Telegraph Avenue Murals

This week I take you a little north of Oakland to the university town of Berkeley. After a walk through ‘Telegraph Avenue’ the year before last, I chanced upon these murals.

Mural 1 — Mural design by Osha Neumann, painted with O’Brien Thiele

Janet Kranzberg, Daniel Galvez and many others
Painted in 1976
Restored and enlarged in 1999
The mural on this wall was painted the year of the Bicentennial of the American Revolution to commemorate a more recent revolutionary period. It depicts the social and political movements that defined Berkeley in the Sixties beginning in 1964 with the Free Speech Movement and concluding five years later with the struggle accompanying the creation of People’s Park on the eastern portion of this block.

      Yeah, both of them.
      The first one seems to have a lot of local history on there.

    Very interesting.. and they are very artistic and not your typical street graffiti….

      The first one — I hear — talks about a lot of history of the city. And the second one is so bright and colourful. I wish I had gone to the other side and taken a better picture through those grills.

      I can see why. 🙂 Those people seem so right in that pic, don't they?
      Have a good week, Tom.

    There sure is a lot to see in this mural!

    • dNambiar
      16 November 2015 at 8:55 pm

      Oh yeah, a lot.
      If I go that side again, and if these murals are still there, I'm going to take better shots.

      Thank you for coming by. 🙂

    Such a lot of detail in both. They are big projects and they look great.

      Huge projects indeed.
      I hear the first one has been touched up. That must have been a big job too.

    Berkeley has so many cool murals; I'm glad they're being shown. (My own camera stops working at the Oakland city line). Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

      Oh really? Only Oakland? Oh yeah — it's an Oakland Daily. 🙂
      Thank YOU so much for hosting. This meme makes me want to taking 'clicking murals' a little more seriously. 🙂 Thank you. 🙂

      Me too. I just had to take pics of all that colour. If only I had the details. 🙁 Next time!!
      Thank you, Nomad. 🙂

    As culturally rich as the mural is, I appreciate the way it has been captured from the sidewalk.

      🙂
      See, even the people in the picture couldn't help giving these mural a look. 🙂

      Thank you so, so much, USP. I wish I had a better photo of the second one, though.
