By Lucie, News Team ContributorWhile most museums and art galleries are still closed, there is a wealth of public outdoor art and online galleries that can still be appreciated.
1. Public Art and Heritage Walk in Walnut CreekThe five public art tours can be an entertaining activity for all ages, while also being a way to get fresh air. Tour 1 is located in the Lesher Center and the Arts District, Tour 2 is located on Main Street and at the City Hall and Civic Park. Tour 3 is art on the Plazas, while Tours 4 and 5 are in North Downtown and outside of downtown. If you’re not in the mood to go on a walk, the gallery is also online! Along with the pieces of art you can view online, there are also narrations and explanations about each piece.
2. Public Art ArchiveThe Public Art Archive is a website where you enter your zipcode, and it gives you results of outdoor art in your area. In Pleasanton, for example, the website gives the locations of many murals, sculptures, and even mosaics.
