The Rue de Merde, which translates from French to "street of shit", is a mural wall along an open-street dog path in the Jingletown neighborhood of Oakland. Created in 2009, the wall is comprised of nearly a dozen different murals and mosaics representing the community. 

The project was organized by the Jingletown Arts and Biz Community, JABC, and sponsored by Pro Arts and the City of Oakland. The pieces were created by various artists. Learn more here.
