I read this story on the Boys of “K” Street want to do exactly what we did right here in 29 Palms. No kidding instead of drumming up some business they are painting the town. What a great opportunity for a guy like Chuck Caplinger. Look what his Murals have done for us.
Looking to tap into the city’s burgeoning mural scene, downtown officials are seeking entries from artists willing to provide a cosmetic upgrade to a blighted corner of K Street.
The Downtown Mural Project, launched by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, will result in up to 14 murals being placed on walls surrounding a vacant stretch of the 800 block of K streets, where previous buildings collapsed or were demolished. For the last few years, a fence standing at that corner has been draped with an advertisement for downtown activities.
“The murals on the 800 block are the start of a conversation with the community and a way to make small–albeit cosmetic–short-term changes in the physical environment,” said Michael Ault, the executive director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership.
