  • Found in Reno: Multi-story parking-garage murals

    Reno and street art just cannot be separated from each other. The art on the street are not much talked about. At least not as much as the casinos and the neon lights that seem to characterize the city. But anybody who has walked down those streets cannot have...
  • Art attack on a utility box in Reno

    As I was putting together the post on the utility box art that I came across in Reno, NV. I couldn’t bring myself to put up the pictures of this bright yellow box I found near Club Cal-Neva at the intersection of Virginia Street and Second Street. It felt...

    Capitola’s Breezeway Murals

    Last summer we holidayed in Capitola on California’s Central Coast and while we were there, I happened upon several murals in this seaside village. On my last evening I found some very Capitola murals on a breezeway on Esplanade. The breezeway was poorly lit but I couldn’t helping taking...
