"Walters Street" by San Antonio artist Oscar Alvarado are sculptural mosaics placed along the sidewalks of Walters Street. These designs reference the history of the surrounding neighborhood and honor landmarks that were integral to the economic development of the area. The 3’ X 9’ mosaics are placed in proximity to three selected bus stop benches along Zarzamora Street, providing shading to pedestrians and bus riders, and enhancing the cultural significance of the neighborhood.


These sculptural mosaics reference the history of the surrounding neighborhoods.  The mosaics honor the landmarks that were integral to the area.
