Long Description:
This 15' x 55' mural faces north and greets people arriving into Santa Cruz coming south on California Highway 1. The side of the Upper Crust Pizza building has one window on the wall and the mural is painted above this window.

A banner across the top of the mural reads "Upper Crust Pizza Welcomes You to Santa Cruz". The mural is a view of the city and highlights featured buildings of Santa Cruz, such as the Coconut Grove, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, The Wharf, the Lighthouse Field State Beach, The Del Mar Theater, the Roaring Camp Railroad Train, the Santa Cruz Mission and finally down in the lower left corner of the mural is The Upper Crust Pizza Building!

On the wall of this building within the mural is a small window and another smaller depiction of same mural again, with the banner and all landmarks shown in a smaller scale. Again in the lower left corner of the secondary mural is another Upper Crust Pizza building!

On this building is again a third, smaller depiction of the mural, with a fourth image of the Upper Crust Pizza building. This building is too small to go further with the mural and the credits of the creators appear under this building.

Altogether the mural goes three levels deep within itself!
