Thank you for supporting downtown Redding Businesses!
Last year saw the unveiling of many new murals in Downtown Redding. Community murals are a mode of expression for artists in every graphic style imaginable: abstract, photorealistic, surrealist, expressionist and graffiti, to name a few. Some Downtown murals have become community centerpieces that bring people together to consider the heritage and history of our home.
It is no secret: murals make our neighborhoods beautiful. They add color to walls and streets that might otherwise go unnoticed, which is a treat for locals and tourists alike. Murals attract new local businesses and customers and boost the economy. Public art tours are a great way to interact with a city and its art.
Murals encourage you to slow down and admire your surroundings, and they can create dialogue around a subject or community issue. Best of all, murals are available for everyone to see and enjoy.
