Murals and sculptures of all styles can be found gracing the sides of popular restaurants and stores.
These works range from the bright and colorful abstract works of Ted Fontaine and Jennifer Pochinksi to classic still life work of Guy Diehl and Myron Stephens.
There are plenty of works to entertain the kids too, including a life sculpture of a giraffe by Jean Van Keuran.
The walk is unique in that each piece of art was fitted with RFID tags that allow the viewer to interact with the work.
Visitors can explore the walk for free and at their own pace or for a small fee they can take an artist and curator lead guided tour.
Tours are available by appointment only on Saturdays and Sundays. Maps are available at the Yolo Visitor’s Bureau.
Overall the walk takes about two hours on foot but the bike friendly city of Davis welcomes bicyclists to come enjoy the art on two wheels. It’s a great way to experience art and culture while being outdoors and experiencing the charming city of Davis.
