Oakland-Fukuoka Sister-Cities Mural


"Oakland-Fukuoka Sister-Cities Mural", 1992, 8' X 16', Acrylics on canvas.

This painting was a gift from the artist to the city of Fukuoka, Japan in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Oakland's Sister-City relationship with Fukoka. As a part of the gift, the painting depicts traditional Japanese papermakers as well as Oakland school students who were learning the art of papermaking through the program "Renaissance of Papermaking", an Oakland arts non-profit group. The students and teachers depicted in the painting were part of a small delegation to attend the anniversary held in Fukuoka in 1992. The students taught Western papermaking methods in elementary schools in Fukoka.
