Yosemite Street Mural

Transformative arts-driven street safety project on Yosemite Drive in Eagle Rock

Featuring 4,000 square feet of hand-painted artwork, the "Boesche Way" mural project is one of LA’s first, designed to make school crosswalks safer, discourage dangerous driving and inspire similar projects across the region.

In January 2024, OXY ARTS, Eagle Rock High School, LA Department of Transportation, Bloomberg Associates, and the artist Andrew Armstrong completed “Boesche Way,” an innovative, street redesign that transforms road space into a colorful gateway, in honor of Occidental Professor Roger Boesche who inspired generations of Occidental College students, including President Barack Obama. 

Designed to address safety at an intersection that the Eagle Rock neighborhood had long sought to improve, this project transforms the intersection of Yosemite Drive and La Roda Avenue—adjacent to Occidental’s campus—using vivid colors to enliven the corridor and enhance the visibility of crosswalks used daily by hundreds of students, faculty and staff as well as local residents and visitors. The designs were painted by the artist team as well as volunteers from both the college and the high school. 

In addition to the artwork and a new painted curb extension, LADOT is studying feasibility for additional traffic safety improvements, including additional crossing time for pedestrians, a lower speed limit, and increased visibility at crosswalks with new red-painted curbs.
