Greetings from Haywards Mural, Hayward Historical Society wall - by J. Powell
The idea behind the program was to deter graffiti by installing beautiful mural artwork throughout the city on:
- commercial buildings
- utility boxes
- fire hydrants
- other sidewalk fixtures
Longwood Elementary School Lions Mural - by S. Gayle
Today, the program has changed into something much more. The murals have not only helped with the graffiti problem, but they have also made our City more beautiful. The program has become an important part of the City Council’s priorities of a safe, clean, green and thriving community.
We have also seen the program:
- create jobs
- boost civic pride
- highlight our cultural diversity
- enrich our community
- create a sense of community identity

Over the years we have been able to grow the program and build strong partnerships with our community. This includes:
- business owners
- volunteers (at least 1,000 throughout the Bay Area)
- property owners
- private organizations like PG&E, Union Pacific Rail Road and Hayward Unified School District
