Power. To. People. (Part 1 of 2.)

Power. To. People.

From our new “Art Must Do Something” files, here are photos (Part 1 of 2) we took this weekend of the A People’s History of Telegraph Avenue mural located on the wall of a building adjacent to People’s Park in Berkeley, California. The mural was painted in 1976 by Osha Neumann, O’Brian Thiele, Janet Kransberg and Daniel Galvez with the assistance with many community volunteers, and was restored in 1999 by Neumann and Thiele along with Natalia Zukerman and Olivia Quevedo.

The mural depicts important chapter’s in the history of the area: The Free Speech Movement, Stop the Was Liberation Black Panthers, 60′s Street Scene, Peoples Park Bloody Thursday May 19 1969, Death of James Rector and The Future Grows out of The Present.

More information about the events depicted in the mural is available here.
