The People of Oakland mural is an ongoing series of murals by father and son team Michael and John Manente. The murals feature various people in Oakland representing different aspects of the community and are painted on the side of the Haley Law Office building at the oddly-shaped intersection of Clay, 17th Street, and San Pablo Avenue.
