“Missing Peace” is the first CATA mural in Redwood City. Designed and painted by local artist Dodge Williams, the mural symbolizes how healing is a collaborative effort requiring not just the efforts of an individual but the support of friends, family and the local groups. Each person brings their own piece to the puzzle of creating greater overall peace and love in the community at large.
Missing Peace is located on Emerald City Liquors at 3025 Jefferson Ave, Redwood City, California.
CATA and Dodge Williams have partnered with the Mental Health Association of San Mateo County (MHA) to encourage community collaboration in promoting healing and growth from individual struggles such as mental illness and homelessness.
The MHA is a nonprofit organization that enriches quality of life, restores dignity, and reduces homelessness, particularly for those affected by mental illness and HIV/AIDS. MHA strengthens hope for healing by providing shelter, support and opportunities for socialization.
