For over 10 years, the Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District (TTBID) has been trying to get the City of Oakland to repave Telegraph Ave. between 45th and 51st Streets. The City itself has ranked this street as one of the worst streets in the city (ranked as Poor/Failing at <30, when 100 is the top score). Now this stretch of Telegraph Ave is barely passable, with pedestrians and bicyclists hurt frequently, and causing costly repairs to vehicles. The hazardous state of the road is a threat to the safety of the Oakland community.
Artist Lori Anne Fischer, supported by funding from Councilmember Dan Kalb’s office, the Temescal Business Improvement District, and the Brignole Family, has installed a gorgeous mural entitled “RISE” along the East side of Shattuck Ave between 46th and 47th St. The RISE mural depicts a woman and tree with the message of “RISE” in the background, creating a positive, beautiful design that is bold and dynamic in scope making it possible to be enjoyed by pedestrians and by those driving by.
