The West Oakland Mural Project
West Oakland Mural Project is The Women of The Black Panther Party Mural and Mini Museum. The Mural is a 2000-square-foot public art masterpiece, installed on a private home in the heart of West Oakland, CA. Envisioned and curated by long time Oaklander Jilchristina Vest, this mural recognizes and honors the role of the Black Panther Women and the over 60 Community Survival Programs they created and managed.
The Black Panther Party Museum Oakland is 1000sqft and installed on the first floor of her home.
These are the FIRST and SECOND EVER PERMANENT ART INSTALLATIONS to exist honoring the work of The Black Panther Party and acknowledging the role women played. This project is to remind us that The Black Panther Party was formed and consisted of young humanitarians, gathered to protect and better the lives of poor and oppressed people throughout the world.
