Wolf of L Street mural
On the streets of Downtown Bakersfield, you can now look for a lone wolf as a beacon of hope and inspiration for artists throughout the city.

The "Wolf of L Street" mural was unveiled Thursday by the Gonzalez family and Councilmember Andrae Gonzales, who helped commission the painting. The mural is in honor of the family's lost loved one, Peter Gonzalez, an East Bakersfield High wrestler and artist who died last year.
