KNOW JUSTICE Public art can be a powerful expression of the values of our community. Last week, the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) unveiled a large-scale permanent art installation painted by Anavictoria Avila at their South Berkeley location at 2921 Adeline St. The two-part mural is anchored by a painted garage door that says “Know Justice, Know Peace,” surrounded by Marigold flowers. The work also includes images of an intergenerational Black family playing music and a Black woman holding a Trans Pride flag. The EBCLC writes that the mural, titled Know Justice, Know Peace—Our Vision for Community Health, “honors the lives, strength, and stories of women of color, and commemorates the power and vibrancy of EBCLC’s historically Black South Berkeley neighborhood.” Check out the mural online or drive, walk, or run by the spectacular honoring of the Black community.
