Artist and teacher Andrew Kong Knight – the guy who did the detailed nature-scene “Gateway Mural” on Foothill Boulevard at City Center — has been commissioned by the city to do some more pieces around the downtown movie theater.
It’s part of the city’s Mural Program, as are the other new murals that have popped up around town as well as the decorated utility boxes. Such artworks are apparently a good deterrent to vandalism, and they just kind of make the area look a little livelier, to boot.
The latest murals are expected to be finished by November, weather permitting. There will be a mural tour on July 10 for anyone who wants to learn more and meet the artists. Sign up here.
