This collection of art is a little off the main path, but if you're up for a walk, or have a car, these pieces like hidden gems.
We also have started an archive to recognize the retired works of public art that have been painted over or taken down throughout the years.

3) Underwater Mural | 2018
Artists Olivia B. and Not_hideuhs led a group of middle school students in a week long art class in Make Room. The piece was created at the conclusion of the class and the adults largely stepped back and let the students take on the work themselves.
Not_Hideuhs said that he hopes the piece does more than brighten up the old service shop. "I'm hoping that these kids can take what they learned from here and try something new with it," he said. "I just want to inspire people with it because people always say they're not creative, and I don't think that's true." (Inforum)
We are sad to announce that these works are no longer in existence, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate them!
