New Mural Goes Up at Civic Park in Walnut Creek


Civic Park, Walnut Creek

Over the weekend I saw the finishing touches being put on a new art mural at Civic Park in downtown Walnut Creek.

From a Bedford Gallery FB post:

Monica Canilao is a multi-media artist from Oakland whose vibrant, abstracted geometric designs serve to reimagine the meaning of home and the power of collectivity. Since the late 1990s, Xara Thustra’s art has been inseparable from resistance and community in San Francisco, providing many of the signature visual images of the anti-displacement and anti-war struggles of the era.

theCoderSchool, which offers coding classes to children, opened recently in downtown Walnut Creek. Last year they opened in San Ramon.

From their website:

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun.
