The Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project brings 12 local Oakland artists together to render the mural designed by lead artist Refa One. The mural is based on a story of four super heroes imagined by students at Westlake Middle School as part of the ArtEsteem "Self as Super Hero" curriculum.

The mural is the second of seven murals, all located on underpasses along the 580 freeway in West Oakland, that is part of an ongoing project by Attitudinal Healing Connections to invite middle and high school students to be part of a positive transformation of their neighborhood.
