VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE 2016 TRANSFORMER MURAL HERE
Bastrop Public Art
Bastrop has an active program for art in public places. On our first visit, I noticed outdoor sculptures and colorful murals throughout the downtown area. The transformer box murals in particular caught my eye–happy art surprises scattered around town like sprinkles on cupcake. You’ll find them on street corners, in alleys, and at the curb depicting chickens, old trucks, dancers, roses on a trellis, and so on. (You can see some photos on the Bastrop Art in Public Places website.)
The transformer murals add a lot of charm to downtown Bastrop, so I was thrilled to be among the selected artists for the 2016 Transformer Mural Project.
A plain green electrical box wiped down and ready for primer. This one is behind The Grace Miller Restaurant adjacent to a parking lot. The restaurant staff were the friendliest, most encouraging supporters you can imagine.

Looking better already.
