“This is where humanity must go.. We must learn how to communicate and the highest form of communication must be in the arts.” – Michael Lange (1949-2015)
Oakland muralists take on a massive project in the city’s downtown, only to find themselves at the center of the debate over gentrification and cultural resiliency.
The Alice Street Mural and Documentary uses public art and film to communicate the stories of the history, culture, and people who have shaped Oakland. It is a visual unfolding of displacement and resilience of the communities that intersect at Alice and 14th Streets, which continues today. Currently in Post-Production, Alice Street is scheduled to premiere in October 2016.
Your support for this project is crucial to its completion! Alice Street has been supported by the generous contributions from the City of Oakland’s Cultural Funding Program, Oakland City Council District 3, East Bay Community Foundation (EBCF), Akonadi Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, Clorox Foundation and over 100 Individual Donors.
