Presenting the March 2021 Carlsbad Art Wall Mural

 

 

 

The 2nd Carlsbad Art Wall mural for 2021 just made its appearance this past weekend. “Flow State” was created by Taylor Gallegos, an artist based here in Carlsbad Village. [the sun was casting shadows from the nearby trees, unfortunately]

 

According to Gallegos… “Flow state is that state of being when times stands still,” Gallegos said. “It’s you and whatever you are doing. You totally zone in, focus and relax; everything just start to go in the direction you want it” (quoted by Bryan Snyder in the “Carlsbad Crawl”).

 

Carlsbad Art Wall for March 2021 - "Flow State"

 

Those who live nearby or have visited Carlsbad have probably driven by this colorful wall on Carlsbad Village Drive. Even if you aren’t aware of the official #CarlsbadArtWall name, you may have noticed the changing murals on the east-facing wall of Senor Grubby’s Mexican Restaurant, west of the train tracks heading to the beaches.

 

Bryan Snyder, a well-known Carlsbad artist, founded the Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) in 2015, in cooperation with Senor Grubby’s owner in Carlsbad Village. The Carlsbad Art Wall is a special and very visible venue for residents and visitors to enjoy temporary public art by local, regional and international artists, with several new murals annually.

 

Carlsbad’s reputation as an arts community continues to grow and change with abundant public art (links to an interactive map on the City of Carlsbad website), among other artistic media including theater and music. The Carlsbad Art Wall is a very special part of our expanding and vibrant arts community!

 

Muralists always invite the public to watch them creating, and murals are painted over a weekend.

As a public opportunity for artists to showcase their creativity and share messages for visitors and residents to enjoy for 2 or 3 months, the #CarlsbadArtWall is a unique contribution to the Village by the Sea!

Thanks, George. It does give you something to ponder!

Thank you, Lise. My wife and I both really enjoy art, and collect, and the arts are one of the things we especially like about living in Carlsbad.

Always love your Carlsbad wall art posts, Jeff and look forward to them. We have a self-guided "tour" in Charlotte of wall art in the Queen City... maybe I should write about it one day.

James - Many of them do! Some are local but others are from other areas of So Cal.

It was such a neat idea from the beginning, Grant!
