Monday Mural: Ghost Ship

In December there was a terrible fire in an Oakland warehouse where 36 people lost their lives.  Near the warehouse site, this mural has gone up to commemorate the fire and honor those who died.  The doves represent the souls lost and all their names are listed at the far right side of the mural.  Painted by Vogue and the TDK crew.
