The Sacramento Japantown mural was created to showcase the history and liveliness of the Japanese-American community in Sacramento where the Japantown resided prominently in the 1940s-60s until it was redeveloped by the city. Panel paintings are based off of historical photos of the redevelopment, Japanese-owned businesses, and celebrations from that time, with local community members and volunteers assistance with painting the origami birds and sakura tree that represent the large Japanese-American community that still resides in the area.

Other murals were painted for events hosted by Blue Line Arts as part of their 3rd Saturdays. Each reflects growing community and culture in the Great Sacramento region, with animal and nature symbolism that ties into AAPI history and culture.
