America’s Finest City downtown art

Filed under: Places to visit — Tags: , , , — washaw @ 6:00 am

This mural is located on the side of a building on 6th Avenue downtown.   Nice art but kind of hard to see from the street level.  It looks like a page from our daily newspaper, San Diego Union-Tribune, but I have not been able to find the who, what, when, etc.   If you know or can figure out how to google an answer please leave a comment and let me know.

  1. Looks pretty impressive. And you appear to be living in America’s finest city. Not bad.
    Walker, please check out my reply to your comment on Rembrandt.

  3. These large murals are incredible, especially when being painted. You’ll see two little people on a scaffold, producing something huge.

    I think they produce these the old-fashioned way still, using a grid. I’d love to know more about this one!

  4. That is really cool. I love murals and that looks so real. A huge page out of the newpaper.

    BTW….Could I borrow your ‘Old Adobe Church’ to put on my holy houses blog?? MB Yes or no would work.

  7. Hi, Walker. I hope you’re enjoying your New Year! That’s a mighty impressive piece of work. Big cities always have such wonderful public art. Very nice shot.
