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!
