By September the artists had been working feverishly and by November it was time to add a walking path and landscaping to the garden area. The center panel of the wall is a mosaic mural of the Virgin of Guadalupe (created by me). She has become a place where people are leaving flowers, candles and other offerings. So a special area was
created with railroad ties, gravel, pavers and
rose bushes in front of her.
Here is some of the art so far:
Bill Silveira's Oakland Riviera spray paint graffiti. (Love the "bricks"!)
This 'hood is a dog-loving place! Carlos also is the architect of the garden path and landscaping.
