SAN LEANDRO, Calif., January 15, 2019 – The Mural Co., award-winning, artist-led national mural agency were commissioned by Trammell Crow Co., one of the nation’s leaders in the commercial real estate industry to curate, manage and produce four murals for the new San Leandro Business Center, a 553,200 sq. ft. three-building office complex at 100 Halcyon Drive, San Leandro, CA 94578. The four murals totalling a size of 15,652 sq. ft., approximately 3,400 – 4,500 sq. ft. per mural, were completed December 21, and are titled ‘Hands of Change’. The artist team of three, roughed wet weather, worked through a single 28 day push, and put approximately 1,000 combined hours into the project to complete the four murals.
“The positive message embedded in this vibrant mural series is intended to inspire the local community and visitors alike,” said Will Parker, Principal with Trammell Crow Company’s Northern California Business Unit. “We anticipate that these murals will serve as a local landmark, add value to this significant project and be enjoyed by future tenants of the building.”
The murals face Halcyon St, Washington St, the Amtrak line, and the BART line between San Leandro and Bay Fair stations. The theme of the murals center around the concept of hands as a metaphor for people/community and who we are, as well as the four seasons as a metaphor for the local region’s history and natural cycles of change and rebirth. The timeline begins and moves through Pre-Colonial times (Fall Mural), the Industrial Revolution (Winter Mural), the Digital Revolution (Spring Mural), and with a positive view to the future (Summer Mural), combining the wisdom and learnings of the past with our current knowledge, for a brighter future.
“We are grateful to contribute to the existing murals of San Leandro, and hope the city continues to embrace murals as valuable cultural assets”, said Rye Quartz, The Mural Co.’s Creative Director.
