The “Unity in the Community” mural, which spans a 270 foot wall along the south end of Teralta Park in City Heights, is complete! The project wrapped up in late December after enduring several covid-related setbacks, closing out over five years of planning and hard work by community organizers and local artists.

Portion of Teralta Park Unity mural featuring profile of a Native American person, vibrant plants and flowers, and an black man wearing a blue jacket and a yellow hat.

The mural was sponsored in part by City Heights Business Association. It was conceptualized by local artist, Sake (Christopher Kinney), after extensive community input and vetting, and celebrates the diversity and strength of the City Heights community. Sake took the lead on the early phases of the project, which was then completed by local artists Melody De Los Cobos and GMONIK. The mural features vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and powerful messages of unity and solidarity, and is a powerful reminder of the importance of coming together as a community to create positive change in the world.

The official mural dedication and celebration is scheduled for Saturday, March 25th at 1pm at Teralta Neighborhood Park. The whole community is welcome! See below for more photos of the vibrant mural.
