Wide Open Walls 916 – Social Distancing Edition

Sacramento continues to encourage and promote it’s Wide Open Walls art festival.  This colorful wall spoke to me as I am always partial to rainbows and color flows like this.  Funny enough this was shot as only part of the wall.  I preferred this simplicity to the other part of the wall which had the actual substance to it.  Art can speak to us in many ways.

Wide Open Walls 916 – Midtown Sacramento faces and emotions

Sometimes I wonder how long this street art will last. How long until it’s disturbed or defaced? How long until a building is sold and it’s painted over? I suppose what matters is the here and now and enjoying it while it lasts. Watch it age. Watch it change separate from a museum where art of preserved forever. Here is a collection of people and faces and art that evokes some emotion. Happy Monday everyone.

Wide Open Walls 916 – Sacramento larger than life

Whenever something brings me downtown it’s always fun to try and find some new murals. After a few years of the festival murals are everywhere ripe for the picking. Murals wrap every side of this building making it far more interesting than it likely was before! Do you have any good street art where you are?

Wide Open Walls 916 @ The Mill

The Wide Open Walls festival is in full swing in Sacramento again for 2019! This one isn’t so much a wall but I love the rainbow colors! This new addition has an interesting take on a “wall.” It’s right smack in the middle of a new housing development who has chosen to retain a few of the old mill related items from before its redevelopment. I love the fresh look and imagine it will be iconic for the area. Cheers!

Wide Open Walls 916

The Wide Open Walls 916 festival is about to kick off again in Sacramento and I’m totally excited! I very much enjoyed visiting the various locations throughout Sacramento since last summer mural viewing and can’t wait to see what the artists come up with for this year’s festival. The art freshens up boring or run down buildings. It gives people an excuse to visit buildings or parts of town perhaps they wouldn’t normally. It freshens up areas of town and brings new energy. Somehow it makes me feel like my humble town has “finally arrived!”

Stay tuned for new murals big and small! Click here for previous posts on lots of exciting local art.
