Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 135: Sacramento News & Review Newsstand Art Project

With my recent posts about the Capitol Box Art project, I realized that I'd done a disservice to an older and more-established public art endeavor with a similar theme and function -- the Newsstand Art Project by our local alternative weekly newspaper, the Sacramento News & Review. 

This project has been underway for at least four years now, and given the large number of SNR boxes around not only Sacramento but also the surrounding area, the impact of supporting local artists and infusing a decorative element into these boxes so commonly seen on street corners definitely is far greater than the Capitol Box Art project.

The SNR box on the southwest corner of the intersection at 9th & Q Streets, right across from our Saratoga Townhomes complex, has a circus theme.  I'm rather fond of it thanks to the elephant on one side!
