“great community art project”

This is a cool community art project where all nature of artist is encouraged to scavenge, search through and even "dumpster dive" for recycled treasures.  The artistic creations are pretty incredible: An abandoned train cars, jungle gyms, and other neglected goodies have all been turned into unique art. Most art is covered in graffiti and brightly painted. You can feel free to walk around, take pictures and most importantly become inspired!

This was very hard to find. There was a lot of cool street art and sculptures around, but I don't know if I found this exact site.

Definitely lots of graffiti but not many murals. There were 3 big ones on this street and a few sculptures in the back area.

Lots of graffiti everywhere, but I'd say you have to walk a little bit in between the big murals. In the alleyway of Mandela Pkwy & 20th St there are some AMAZING iron sculptures. Over 20ft tall humanoid sculptures that are truly breathtaking. I found a Buddha, giant iron plants, and two women with epic chain dreadlocs. Definitely worth going down the alley, although it doesn't look like more than a parking lot when you're at the start of it. Definitely worth stopping, if you're walking, Adeline St. has some great art along the length of it.
