Mural below an overpass on Forbes Ave.

mural on Forbes Ave. below the
overpass In Oakland, on Forbes Ave,, where it, the Boulevard of the Allies, and the Parkway don't-quite-intersect in an unholy, confusing nexus, there's a mural painted under an overpass. T. K. Mundok painted it, though unfortunately, it looks like others have added graffiti on top. Still, it's a pretty impressive piece of work, and literally thousands of people drive by it every day. I have to admit, I didn't notice the mural until recently, probably because the stretch leading up to the mural is an attention-grabbing mishmash of a blind curve, a merge, and 3 lanes of heavy traffic. Come to think of it, this might be the last place I'd want a mural that could distract people.
