This is an opportunity to learn more about the process of mural painting, meet the artists behind the murals, and submerse yourself in the historic Jack London District.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I am passionate about highlighting the undiscovered landmarks of Oakland. As the founder of StreetSalad.Co, I print images of unique landmarks, small businesses, and local finds on full- color, print postcards. I then use the landmarks pictured on the postcards with local walking tours. The best part is being able to send a personal hand written note to a friend or family member saying, "you should be here!" You can shop all of our postcard collections at www.StreetSalad.Co. Limited calendar dates are open. Please reach out directly to schedule.

Where you'll be

I don't want to share too much, but know that our adventure will take place in Jack London, Oakland's oldest district. We'll begin at the Visit Oakland Office for a peak at all things Oakland, and then submerse ourselves in the old architecture and new murals this neighborhood has to offer.

I've been living in the Bay Area for 3 years and have always just barely passed by Jack London Sq. with disinterest and from my superficial vision of what I thought was another one of those "waterfront touristy areas". Jena's insights changed my experience so deeply, I was absolutely impressed with the richness of this urban industrial landscape, all the layers of what I want to believe is Oakland's soul just hiding around the corners for those that are open to perceiving them, Jena knows the way! This experience has the highest recommendations I can give.
