Our goal with the Oakland Mural project is to cultivate, educate and engage youth in community issues and solutions through the power of public art.
Oakland Superheroes Overview
Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project (OSH) is a crucial community development effort by Attitudinal Healing Connection (AHC) in Oakland that will engage over 300 youth to be change-agents in their community. This project aims to resolve issues that plague our city, create over 30 jobs, enhance our neighborhoods and reduce blight. AHC is proud to share the progress of the first of six large scale mural beautification and revitalization public art project in West Oakland/Emeryville.
As part of the planning process, AHC surveyed residents of the Hoover Corridor Neighborhood where the murals will be immediately located. Community members were asked to describe positive & negative aspects of the neighborhood as well, as their hopes and dreams for the community and future public art pieces. Responses determine the content of the murals. AHC will be hiring mainly Oakland based artists to paint the murals, as the whole process will promote and exemplify community collaboration from beginning to end.

There is lots of great information about the artists involved as well as the full stories of the super heroes featured in each of the past murals.
West Street Mural (West Wall), #4 Design. In Progress.
In recent months during the final mural approval processes, Caltrans, the property owners of the freeway walls, has created a legal barrier and we are now unable to move forward.
WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!!! Encourage Caltrans to approve the production of the next mural. Our underpasses are in a crisis state and present so many problems in our area. Reviving this public space through art and beauty means a stronger investment from Oakland residents to keep the city safe and respected by all.

In Memory of Antonio Ramos
The Board of Directors and Staff of AHC wish to express our gratitude for your love and support for the loss of Antonio Ramos and the emotional trauma surrounding the tragic event. Slowly, it is beginning to subside, and with your support we will move forward with AHC's vision to complete the remaining murals.
