This mural is by local artist Stan Padilla. You can read about what the mural is all about if you click on the image below. I love how when you walk around the town of Auburn you can be treated to art. I often wonder how many people take the time to really get up close to it and find out what it's all about. The other day, I did just that and tried to capture some close-ups to share on my blog. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did.
Our area has a rich history with the Maidu and Miwok Indians. I am happy that Stan has taken the time and the effort to honor these peoples. He has depicted some of what intrigues many people who live here and visit here.
Our area is rich with animal life and we are blessed to have the beautiful American River here as well as many others (Yuba, Sacramento, Cosumnes, Stanislaus, etc.)

Thanks, Stan, for all your hard work and dedication. I hope that many people enjoy this mural for many more years to come.
