Local residents can take a guided tour of downtown artwork at 4:30 p.m. Friday afternoon with 10 painters and muralists, hosted by the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts. The group will meet at the gallery at First and E streets and will follow the new Davis Art Walk map.
The map is now available to the public and provides a comprehensive guide to public art that helps form the Davis Cultural Arts and Entertainment District. It lists 23 public murals, 16 sculptures and 15 galleries and museums in downtown Davis and on the UC Davis campus.
The map was created by the Cultural Arts Action Committee and the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts; sponsors include the city of Davis, Davis Downtown and the Yolo County Visitors Bureau.
Users can follow the map to all of the artworks — identified by number, title and artist — by foot or on a bicycle. In addition, the map includes the innovative Transmedia Sculpture Walk, a first-in-the-nation collection of interactive art, which is part of the burgeoning Davis Cultural Art and Entertainment District.
