Put Out A Shingle

Working from home.  The good life.  But how do you let people know what you do?  Put out a shingle of course!

Murals

It’s too bad that older murals look so faded that it is easy to ignore them and not see the details any more.   Never-the-less, it is nice to have these large format artworks visible.  I have more detailed images of some of the bigger murals, but didn’t want the slide show to get too long. Please let me know if I missed anything around town!  (Also, if you know how to read graffiti text, please send me the translations!)

Art Cars

I’m always amazed that there aren’t more art cars around.  Certainly one doesn’t have to be as bold as some of these items, but there are enough beater cars around town that could stand an artist’s touch.  (I’m slowly working on my own truck!)  I wonder if we could do a fund-raiser at the high school art department with people willing to pay to have their vehicle get a special paint job?  As a side benefit, it would make hit-and-run accidents much less common.

Public Benches

There are plenty of places to sit down around town. If your favorite bench isn’t unique, grab some paint and ask someone in public works if you can customize your own!
