I have always been impressed by the talent and technique of the street artists
who tackle the really big mural projects, the ones that involve whole sides of
buildings. The ability to transform a design or concept to this scale is a truly
wondrous thing to behold. There is an amazing array throughout the city, but
I offer this small caveat, I have watched whole areas of once vigorous artistic
activity in some neighborhoods disappear in a few short years as
gentrification moves in. Enjoy these while you can.
