Check out the Latest Carlsbad Art Wall Mural
The latest Carlsbad Art Wall was painted this past rainy weekend, January 12th and 13th - I sure felt sorry for the artist, but there were moments of no rain and the creation was mostly completed. She notes on her Facebook page she still has a few things to finish on her creation later this month due to the rainy weather, but it's striking nonetheless - I'll post an update when it's finally completed!
The newest wall mural was created by muralist, Annie Preece (aka “Love Annie”), who hails from Los Angeles. In addition to being a painter and muralist, Annie is a comedian and public speaker.
Carlsbad artist, Bryan Snyder is the brainchild of the Carlsbad Art Wall, now in its 4th year. This project is in cooperation with Senor Grubby’s, a popular Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad Village, and the collection of murals over the years is impressive.
No doubt you have driven by if you live in the area or have visited Carlsbad. Even if you don’t know the official #CarlsbadArtWall name you no doubt have noticed the changing murals on the east-facing wall on Carlsbad Village Drive, just west of the train tracks.
Carlsbad is known as a growing and changing arts community, with abundant public art (an interactive map). The Carlsbad Art Wall really is a 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:
I enjoy seeing each new wall mural, and you often see locals and visitors hanging out to watch artists at work – I haven’t done that yet but it’s still something I’d love to do. What a wonderful idea to have beautiful wall art for a few months, giving residents and visitors plenty of time to enjoy these special, but fleeting, public creations.
The Carlsbad Art Wall is a wonderful opportunity for talented artists to showcase their creativity, and a special addition to our Village by the Sea!
