This is a portion of a giant 350 ft long mural. Two portions have been approved but the third was rejected. Given the length and variety of subject matter, it seemed appropriate to submit it as three separate portals (Giant Farm Mural, Giant Tuna Mural and Preferred Polar Mural)
As work wraps up on the construction of the 247,000 square foot Preferred Freezer facility just off San Leandro Boulevard, a major piece of public art is taking shape. When Preferred Freezer began construction at the 15 acre site in late 2013, they agreed to make a substantial investment in a mural on the east wall of the facility, visible from the BART line.
As described by artist George Mead, “this 60' x 350' mural offers the opportunity to reflect on San Leandro’s rich history, as well as celebrate the prosperity and success of the city today.” The mural will incorporate images of the Azores, fruits and vegetables, fish, snowflakes, and polar bears; symbols of San Leandro’s past along with fun connections to the cold storage facility.
