This afternoon I rode my bike past the water tanks at the junction of West, Red Hill, and Chinquapin Roads on UCSC’s Upper Campus. The water tanks are like a modern Newspaper Rock. The rotating art exhibit changes whenever someone paints over the previous work.
These murals are a beautiful and effective form of activism. They are also likely to reach a sympathetic audience: recreationalists like bikers, joggers, hikers, and mushroom hunters who enjoy Upper Campus in its undeveloped state.
