On Saturday, May 4, after I parked near Learning Bee Preschool &amp; Daycare on Longfellow Avenue, dogs started barking and a woman came out to say hello. It turns out that several of the staff live in the neighborhood&hellip; I think the place is family-owned. When I told her that I was taking photos of their new murals, she let me inside the gate. So kind! I took these next photos from a play ..read more

Fifteen years ago &mdash; May 29, 2009 &mdash; we published two colorful walls of murals at the Armory Park Senior Citizens' Recreation Center. That post is Giant plants (or tiny buildings).

A former Allstate insurance office became Canyon Restoration &mdash; probably sometime last year. (The business isn't restoration for canyons. They repair things like water damage.) The formerly boring white building now has a big mural, and a couple of small ones, by Alejandra Trujillo. Let's start with the building on April 2, 2024. At the end, we'll show photos of the painting in progress and ..read more

They were attached to downtown storefronts just north of Congress along the west side of 6th Avenue (across from Ronstadt Transit Center). I snapped these photos on April 7, 2024.
