Art Sunday on Monday

Didn't procrastinate this time -- just so busy with work that I didn't have time to find a new artist and read up before blogging.  Day late, dollar short.....story of our lives lately?

Anyhow, I live in a small town with a growing art footprint.  Featured today are some of the many murals around town.  Nothing like a touch of paint on some bland surface to add that ambience that makes this a great place to live.

I'll discuss more about public art and specifically our engineering department's growing incorporation of design into our infrastructure - the boys on the second floor - well they've been growing their right brains and the results are quite impressive.


  1. Chico is a surprisingly artful place. I say "surprisingly" - which sounds condescending and I don't mean it to be! - simply because I've never been there and I have this image of it being a mid-Cali rural outpost. Clearly not.

    Beautiful work.

  2. :) - living large in blue city in red county...having a large state university in-house prevents this from being another sleepy ag town
