County Construction Fence Turned Art Gallery

Something new is celebrating something old at Cedar and Kettner. Large murals depicting Little Italy’s cultural history have been installed along a construction fence on the east side of some County property. You might be familiar with it. The property lies just outside the Cedar-Kettner employee parking garage.

The County and the Little Italy Association agreed to set up an art walk of sorts until the property is developed. Passersby can’t miss the colorful four-by-eight-foot-long murals. Each one features a caption describing the historic scene. Artist Elisabeth Sullivan prepared the drawings and made the art panels.

The art will remain on display until the site is turned over to a developer. The Little Italy Association will then relocate the panels to another part of the community.
