Oakland, California (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
Oaksterdam University (OU) is proud to announce the completion of a new 7,500 sq ft work of art on the side of the OU building at corner of 17th and Broadway, commemorating the Oaksterdam Cannabis District.
The design was selected by the Oakland Planning Commission following a Request for Proposal that was circulated. Local artist R.B. Morris III was chosen for his design that includes Oakland landmarks Fox Theater, Lake Merritt and the Tribune Tower.
The mural was completed in time to celebrate Oaksterdam’s 15 year anniversary. In 1996 the Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative first began distributing medical marijuana from 1755 Broadway.
Over the years many other cannabis businesses such as Oaksterdam University have flourished revitalizing the area that had many vacant store fronts. OU opened in 2007 and since has brought in 10,000 students from all over the world to be trained for the rapidly expanding legal cannabis industry.
