Wetlands Mural Begins to Take Shape

The public art project is being painted on South Green Valley Road.

The beginnings of a new public art project are forming near a busy intersection in Watsonville.

A wetlands mural is being painted on the retaining wall recently built on South Green Valley Road near Main Street. The 220-foot-long mural of birds, plants, animals and water will be done by Art Thomae, who has painted other murals in the city.

It's part of a city beautifying project aimed at. The mural will take about three months to complete, according to the city.

The retaining wall was built after a piece of the hillside slipped, displacing part of the sidewalk, curb and street, according to the Register-Pajaronian newspaper.

Oh this is great. A brand new mural in Watsonville. I hate seeing all the gray utility boxes around and am glad we are painting them too.

Can't wait to see it finished. We need more of this around town.
