The AscenDance Mural replaced the Alice Street Mural Project or "Universal Language" mural intended to combat gentrification, but now erased from the visual landscape by...gentrification. Community Rejuvenation Project artist Desi Mundo said the new mural embodies Oakland’s ability to do more than just survive gentrification and displacement — it can also thrive and create.
Work began on the "360 mural" in May 2020 at 360 - 14th Street in downtown Oakland. A mock up and detailed description can be found here http://crpbayarea.org/desi-mundo-breaks-down-the-360-mural.
Artists include Desi Mundo, Marina Perez-Wong, Elaine Chu, and Priya Handa.
