Over the weekend I had a chance to hop on my bike and join Sacramento Cycling Tours for a leisurely ride to check out some of the murals in the Wide Open Walls project. With the addition of the new arena, a new way of thinking seems to be sweeping over the city. Once beige walls are now being adorned with spray paint, house paint, and other pigmented shades of media that are showing signs of the new life taking over Sacramento.
There are over 40 artists participating in this event, we didn’t get to see all of the murals along our route but we did get to see about 20 pieces in varying levels of completion. What we have here is only a small selection of some of the pieces that were farther along or finished so stay tuned for a follow-up post highlighting more.
