If you keep your eye out, you will find beautiful artwork all over the city. From murals on the walls of buildings to the painted electrical boxes around town- there is wonderful art to be seen if you know where to look! I love driving or walking around the city in a new area and being surprised by artwork on the side of a building.
This mural can be found in the North Park neighborhood near Burlingame.
