You won’t be seeing me here during the month of October. I’m taking a leave of absence … sort of. Stay tuned …
At Ft Sutter Park.
Followed by a great lunch at Tres Hermanas.
Today’s route was all downtown – a pain using a car, much easier on a bike. I parked in Old Sac. I couldn’t find the first artist, Bryan Valenzuela in Firehouse Alley:
The next four artists were all in Improv Alley between 7th & 8th:
In Merchant Alley, the artist 2 Hermano:
The artist 594evah painted a tribute to Danny Sandoval, a well-known local musician:
And this very special moment:
My last stop of the day. Raphael Delgado:
Raphael said he chose to do this mural because he thought everyone could use a hug during our current challenging times. So true.
I volunteered this year at Wide Open Walls. The Sacramento mural festival was first conceived as an idea to activate spaces in alleyways and buildings throughout Sacramento. I was called an Art Ambassador. I drove a route to visit all the art but mostly to see if the working artist needed anything.
Jose De Gregorio:
I had a lot of nice chats with artists, no one needed anything. I especially enjoyed listening to Lisa Elias as she analyzed her work from across the street.
Lisa also recommended the restaurant across the street: Casa Tulum. In addition to good food, I am supposed to check out more of her work in the bathroom. I’m going to do that!
