While visiting Lafayette, I went to see the "Wabash Walls," a huge art project along Wabash street in a Lafayette neighborhood between two train tracks, partly residential and partly industrial. Murals have been painted on factories, on warehouses, on private homes, on church admin buildings, and on the street. I visited there in 2018, and for a couple of hours this week, but have seen and photographed only a very small number of the art works in this long-term project. Nevertheless, I have enough pictures for several blog posts! For more information about the Wabash Walls project, see this: "Mural Art Initiative."

controversial San Francisco graffiti artist, who has painted honey bears
on many walls. His work is not always well-liked there. (See this article).
