Wide Open Walls 916 – Sacramento Street Art Festival

Wide Open Walls hosted multiple events spanning multiple weeks this August in downtown Sacramento painting the city walls with street art! Several areas of downtown have been transformed by local and international artists. Locals watched the art being made, attended a number of hosted street parties, and even download an app for a guided walking tour of the various locations of public art pieces.

I  took note of a few of the locations to visit while downtown last weekend and it did not disappoint! I’m proud of my city for allowing something as exciting and forward as this public art exhibit. I am proud Sacramento is finally becoming a world class city by promoting the arts in a modern way. I look forward to next year where they will hopefully do it again in other parts of the city.

Is their interesting street art in your city? What’s your favorite public art piece captured below?

Seeing a photo of the Princess on Instagram is what led me to Wide Open Walls. I went downtown looking for her and found all of the rest of this interesting and awesome art.

It’s hard to make garbage cans look good but they managed it!

Not sure what this is but I like it. And it was HUGE.

Take note of the ladies posing for selfies. I saw this in front of almost all of the art. People were posing and talking about posting it on social media like it was very serious business.

  1. What a great variety of street art. I think my favourite is the girl with the bears. I love street art but my city (Edinburgh, Scotland) does not have that much and so I always take a lot of photos when I find it on my travels. I’ve got a post planned featuring some I saw in Valencia in August. I think you’ve already seen my post on the street art in Reykjavik but in case anyone else is interested, here is the link 🙂

    • Awesome, thanks for posting a link and thanks for your comments! I really like the girl with the bear too. It is really well done and did you see how large it is? It is the entire side of that building. It’s pretty amazing when you think about how hard it must have been to paint.

      I look forward to seeing your post from Valencia. And I will check out your link.

      Have a great day.
