City Murals

Isn’t it delightful to be surprised by the unexpected painted facade on a city street?  More than just eye candy, city murals transform a drab wall into amazing public art. They can leave one in awe, fascinated by the beauty amidst the backdrop of the concrete jungle. As thought-provoking integration of art and environment, one wonders the artist’s intent: political statement, celebration, homage? Here are a few inspiring murals and where to find them.
