Interested in the history behind the uptown murals? Several Susanville murals are featured in the really nice Ten Speed Press book “Large Art in Small Places”, by author Kevin Bruce.
In the book Bruce travels the highways and byways of Northern California to visit 24 towns and showcase 250 contemporary murals.
According to the publisher the murals photographed for the book include, “a variety of public and private buildings and capture moments of local color, cultural significance, natural beauty and imaginative whimsy.”
Each town listing includes a map that pinpoints exactly where the murals can be found, a color photo of the mural, the artist’s name and a short paragraph about the works.
