BART Columns Mural Project

In October 2015, as part of our pilot program (the Northwest Oakland Community Coalition (, our Public Safety Committee contacted BART Director Zakhary Mallett about the possibility of mural placement on the BART columns along the MLK Jr Way corridor from 52nd Street to 61st Street.

The conversation was furthered at our November 11th general meeting where Mr. Mallett and his colleague Director Robert Raburn were our guest speakers. Since then, Mr. Mallett has informed us that he is reaching out to relevant BART staff and will meet with us next year to discuss the feasibility of this project and possible funding sources.

Stay tuned!
