You Can Find Anything in the Streets of Berkeley. A Mayan Mural, For One Thing.


(Public Art) – What a treat! Someone from the neighborhood not far from UC Berkeley has a mural outside their home based on prior work and the ideas of local muralist Ernesto Olmos. A native of Oaxaca but also an American citizen, Olmos is well known in Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area for his murals  depicting Latino culture; he also is a musician and a dancer.

Berkeley resident Franci Kandl commissioned what they have called “The Sacred Alignments,”  telling the story of Creation according to the Mayans.
