There's an ongoing Mural Arts Program there that works with more than 100 communities a year to create murals that reflect the culture of the neighborhoods. There's data base that's dedicated to archiving locations and posting them: http://www.muralfarm.org
Here are a few:
Title: Holding Grandmother's Quilt2004
Artist: Donald Gensler
Location: 3912 & 3932 Aspen St.
Title: Metamorphoris: Blueprint to End Homelessness
