There is all sorts of artwork and graffiti in the Wide Open Walls 916 festival around the Sacramento area. But, some artwork stands apart. This would be fit for canvas and its fifteen feet tall both faces flanking either side of a building. I was actually walking from my car to a business and it stopped me in my tracks. It’s always impossible to share scale in wordpress but I hope the emotion and quality of work come through.
Sacramento’s Wide Open Walls 916 festival has some pretty colorful additions this year. I liked these two in particular because of their joyous color. It really helps make a run down warehouse show some cheer and some pride.
It was wonderful to see first responders represented this year in a few different Wide Open Walls 916 events. This mural along with a part time twin towers painted out of Conex boxes and put on end along with another temporary art exhibit was a breath of fresh air for the event. As everyone is well aware our great State of California continues to get hammered with devastating fires so I support this cheerful way to recognize our first responders in the event.
Sacramento’s 2021 Wide Open Walls 916 festival is mostly over with the cool weather coming in. However, I couldn’t help but share our namesake Bulldog! It seems quite the popular photography spot. It’s massive in scale and colorful and cheerful. Happy Travels Bulldogs!
Happy New Year everyone. I am thankful and grateful for your readership and your comments and your friendship. I hope the final week of 2020 is a good one for all of you and we can collectively wish a better 2021 to each other. I hope 2021 brings health and travel to all of my restless and wanderlusting blogger friends. Cheers and Happy Travels everyone!
Merry Christmas from Bulldog Travels everyone! I hope your holidays are jolly and you are surrounded by light and love no matter how you find it. And please everyone let’s hope 2021 is better! Cheers. #WIDEOPENWALLS916
Nothing says Christmas like an underwater sea creature art mural. Enjoy your holiday time with your family and friends! Much love!
I’ve only just noticed that this pattern is not symmetrical which is of course throwing my OCD off. Ha. I do love this mural though. It’s bright and cheerful and massive in scale. There are lots of people on the WideOpenWalls916 Instagram page who take gorgeous selfies in front of this one. I wasn’t feeling it the day I took this photo but here you are. 😉
My first trip to Art Alley captured the first photo which I did not even realize was incomplete. When I went back it had been colorized and brought to life. Any opinions on which you like better? Before or After? #WIDEOPENWALLS916
A nice wall for thinking in Del Paso Heights which is quickly becoming covered with murals on every free stretch of wall. #WIDEOPENWALLS916
