Had an hour to burn on the way to the Oakland Airporta few weeks ago, so I stopped in downtown to see what they had wallwise. Turns out they have a lot! My first Google hit was a mural about water conservation (no joke!). Figuring that there would be other murals around, I wandered the area (and was not disappointed).

Oakland gets a bad rep, and it's probably justified. A block or two one direction or the other from the main street felt unsafe (lots of abandoned buildings,  and the homeless give you a detailed thrice over). No alley-walking on this visit...
