The lights of Bay Bridge are getting all the airtime right now, but they aren’t the only public art on display around the Bay area.

From highbrow humor to community-organized initiatives, public art is combating the smell of urine on street corners everywhere for sensory supremacy.

In Oakland, the Adams Point Neighborhood Group beautified its streets with tile mosaics.

In San Francisco, the Clarion Alley Mural Project is an artists’ collective that has kept murals in constant rotation since 1992.
