How urban.
Aesthetically, I have always found murals to be the first indicator of gentrification where there is urban decay. Painting on walls is the civil graffiti. I myself prefer the brick,and stucco. There just is not always a need to fill space.

Lisa, so you believe that the wealthier people are moving into the poor urban area of downtown Pleasanton and taking over to make it more suburban? (yes, I just researched the term gentrification)

Of course the Sistine Chapel was just painting on the wall too.

I hope the artist was paid for painting the mural.

Come on people just enjoy. The sun is out the weathers fine. the birds are singing , and you all have to quibble over a beautiful mural on the side of what had been an ugly piece of sheet metal.

Of the people depicted in the mural, how many are male and how many are female?
