We just completed a new mural in Oakland which we painted on June 12th weekend to celebrate Few and Far’s 4 year anniversary. The mural, titled ‘Ode to Oakland’ celebrates Oaklands rich cultural diversity. It was painted on the side of the East Bay Resources recycling center on Mandela Parkway and is over 150′ long and 19′ high. We painted the entire thing over one weekend with 14 women working full days and late nights. The back side of the building was painted by friends of Few and Far making the entire building an outdoor live art event for the weekend. We had plenty of great local support including a slew of awesome Bay Area DJ’s who kept the tunes pumping into the night. Thanks to all the folks who brought us food, drinks, and came down to watch us work. We definitely felt the Oakland love! Go check out the finished wall at 26th and Mandela Parkway, opposite Brown Sugar Kitchen, and the back of the building on Willow st.’ Progress shots finished wall images coming soon!
