If you spend much time around Morgan Junction, you may have noticed a newly installed sidewalk art project right next to Morgan Junction Park. The project was created by the artists “SuttonBeresCuller” and is titled Salon.
Salon represents something new for the SDOT Art Program. It incorporates a series of stamped and stained concrete picture frames in the sidewalk at California Avenue SW & SW Eddy. The frames are a blank slate for neighbors and visitors to create changing works of chalk art. SDOT Street Maintenance concrete crews built the sidewalk and worked with the artists to stamp the concrete frames. The new park and restored sidewalk were dedicated on June 13th.
The project involved collaboration between multiple City departments and a lot of support from the Morgan Junction community. Walk on it, draw on it…and enjoy it.
