01 Jun A surprise garden
It’s worth a visit to the upper deck of the Main Street Garage to see the beautiful tableau of native flowers painted by local artist Isabel DeContreras. It’s our good fortune to have Isabel share her talent here as part of her senior project at Crystal Springs Uplands School. The vibrant colors of the mural present a striking contrast with the downtown skyline.
Another San Mateo artist mentored Isabel as she undertook this project. Todd Lanam, who created a mural on Tilton Ave. last summer, kindly shared his knowledge of this public — and publicly created — art form.
Many thanks to these artists for bringing their unique visions to our community!
