TTBID embarked on an ambitious project to transform the concrete tag attracting atrocities. We've decorated 24, with approximately 14 to go! Our Design Committee has strived in the process to embrace Oakland's unique elements including its rich mosaic culture with the help of Juan Lopez of New World Mosaic.Thanks to sponsors: Ervin Somoygi, Pat Smith, Esqueleto, Reed Bros, Mail Max, VES McDonald's, and Aunt Mary's. We're still looking for additional sponsors: $400 for one panel or $600 for a wrap around design!
