Here’s the Latest Carlsbad Art Wall Mural
The latest Carlsbad Art Wall was painted a little over a week ago, on August 11th and 12th during another one of our recent heat waves, and enjoyed by our summer crowds.
The newest wall mural, “On the Rise but still Adrift,” is by artist, muralist and photographer Carly Ealey, who is based here in San Diego, and it’s stunning! The most recent mural prior to this was The Colors of Carlsbad mural, which really was special, and I was curious what would follow.
Bryan Snyder is the brainchild of the Carlsbad Art Wall, now in its 4th year, in cooperation with Senor Grubby’s, a popular Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad Village, and the collection of murals over the years has been impressive.
Even if you don’t know the #CarlsbadArtWall by name, if you live nearby you no doubt have driven by and seen the changing murals on the east-facing wall on Carlsbad Village Drive, just west of the train tracks.

Carlsbad has quite a reputation as a growing and changing arts community, with abundant public art (an interactive map). Our Carlsbad Art Wall continues to be wonderful addition to our expanding and ever-changing arts community, with a new installation several times per year!
Here are some recent Carlsbad Art Wall murals I have enjoyed:
It's great fun to see each new mural, and locals and visitors often hang out to watch artists at work. What a wonderful venue to have beautiful wall art for a few months, giving residents and visitors plenty of time to enjoy these special, and fleeting, public art creations. And for artists to be able to show what they can create!
