Fremont / Foothill Cultural Corridor
Since 2003, CRP artists have created over 15 murals along Foothill Boulevard in East Oakland, including the creation of a mural arts districts near Fremont High School which includes murals on the surrounding blocks such as Bond and Bancroft. CRP Director Desi W.O.M.E arranged for the entire block between 45th and 46th Avenues to be painted on multiple occasions, last as part of the Summer Youth Employment program in 2009. Other murals on Foothill include “Flux53” (formerly the Egypt Theater), “Shiva Shakti” (one block away from Flux 53) and the “Mind, Body, Spirit mural for Diego’s Power Alley Gym on Avenal.”
In the summer of 2011, CRP continued its “Healthy Lifestyles” campaign through a large-scale commission in the shared cafeteria serving all five schools in the Fremont Federation. CRP painted images of cultural practitioners, gardeners, athletes and youth with affirmations and encouragement for the students.
