Large Art in Small Places: Discovering the California Mural Towns

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

In recent years, the growth of murals in both metropolitan and
small-town California has exploded, inspired by cultural, political,
economical and artistic influences large and small. Literally taking the
museum to the streets, small towns across the sunshine state have
captured moments of local color, cultural significance and natural
beauty in larger-than-life visual history lessons – some as much as 100
feet in length.

Large Art in Small Places by Kevin Bruce brings
California’s mural towns to life, providing a key to going off the
beaten path to discover these hidden gems, something that will appeal to
RVers of all persuasions, whether you full time or just want to get
away for a weekend.

Featuring murals both famous and obscure – like the dramatic
historic tableaus of Art Mortimer along with local artists celebrating
local flora and fauna – and covering subjects ranging from a tribute to
fire fighters to the legendary Beatles, these murals, and the towns
where you can find them, are not to be missed.

MSRP $24.95. 192 full-color pages. Published by Ten-Speed
Press, available at major online and local retail bookstores.
