Monday Mural: lilies on the wall

A Jet Martinez mural was recently completed in downtown Oakland at the rear of the iconic I. Magnin Building.   I. Magnin was a chic fashion store on Broadway and 20th housed in a fantastic green terracotta tiled Deco building.  It now contains offices and still shines among the other Deco buildings that grace downtown.  This mural was arranged through Athen B Gallery and made possible through the building owners HP Investors and Lake Merritt/Uptown Association. Did anyone else think of Diego Rivera when they first looked at this?

    2. Thanks, I've seen them all. I visited it back in 1990's before digital photos and was very angry because I hadn't a spare film.
