- This mural was the first to occupy this same wall. In about 1974 Frank Romero covered 200 square feet with a whimsical spray can heart. In 1978 the Citywide Mural Project brought together several artists to paint OUR PEOPLE (70' x 16'). Among those involved were John Valadez, Barbara Carrasco, Glenna Boltuch (Avila), Carlos Callejo, Leo Lim¢n, George Yepes, and Rod Sakai. In the early 1980s that mural was destroyed when new earthquake codes required Payless Shoes to add steel H-beams and make other improvements to its unreinforced masonry building.
