This mural is at the top of an escalator outside the new Golden One Center. It is vivid and bright and cheerful and I love it. It’s more polished than some and my OCD side super appreciates the perfect lines. It is protected under cover and likely will be with us for some time which is great. Click here and let me know how it stands up to some of the other street art from this summer and previous years of the Wide Open Walls 916 street art festival.
“Snakes! Why’d it have to be snakes?” These massive snakes are down at the bottom of an alleyway. As great as the art is it makes walking down the dark smelly alleyway a little more intimidating than normal. I’ve been meaning to capture this one for a while now but traffic never allowed for it until now. I snapped this and got the heck out of there!

Well, I’m not sure I can say it any better. Breath, All we have is now, relax, You are ok.

This banana is perfection. It isn’t political. It isn’t obscure. It isn’t hidden in an alleyway. It’s just plane hilarious. I did not really capture this in the photo but it is also massive.

This art wall reminds me of some of the Impressionism I have been fortunate enough to see in museums throughout the world. I wonder what the great artists would think of all of this temporary “graffiti art” on walls and buildings? I would like to think they would be right up there with scaffolding doing it themselves. What do you think?

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.

I love this mural. It’s bright and fun and iconic and perfect for the university. I could do without the parking signs obscuring it but that’s neither here nor there. For more Wide Open Walls new from this summer click here!
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?
