Novato Benches = Street Art

November 7, 2008 by  

Just this morning, Novato’s Old Town was the scene of a minor commotion as the newest piece of street art was being positioned on Grant Avenue. This installation was the latest of a series of artistic benches commissioned by the city to be installed along Grant Avenue.  

These artsy benches were created by Jeffrey Cooper, a New Hampshire artist. He has enhanced public spaces across the nation with his unique vision.

Indeed, a few days ago a trio of grazing horses were set out to pasture on Grant Avenue. The appearance of grazing horses across from Grazie Cafe certainly delighted my children–one of whom happened to be wearing her Halloween cowgirl costume when she first noticed the horses. 

The art has been funded by fees paid by real estate developers for various projects. The remaining benches should be intalled by the end of November.
