I just installed this 20 x 20 ft mural using reclaimed wood in the lobby of a new housing building at McArthur Station, Oakland, built by the affordable housing non-profit Bridge Housing. I originally worked on the design in 2014, and rented a studio space at Moxy in Jingletown, Oakland to actually make the piece in January and February 2015. Meanwhile, construction of the building went on and I stored the finished wood boards in the parking garage of the building until they were ready for installation the first week of November 2015. I had help on the installation from ace carpenter Lee Tollefsrud.
Some of the wood comes from Oakland homes, you can see street names in among the foliage etc. I made the pieces in a studio space Jan and Feb 2015, and installed it the first week of Nov. The space is still unfinished but should be open and accessible soon.

There's also a great photo piece and interview by Elise Morris here at The Studio Work.
