The Murals of Modesto

A blank wall is pure potential. Michelangelo knew it well: When you have space, fill it spectacularly. That’s what has happened in Modesto, where wall art is bringing a sophisticated feel to the downtown scene. Every year since 2015, the city has recruited an international collection of mural masters and graffiti stars to dazzle downtown visitors with their colossal creations. Now that the Sistine Chapel is out of your travel plans for a while, Modesto is a convenient alternative:

A local destination packed with world-class food, drink, and fun, plus an international lineup of dazzling wall art. George Lucas put his hometown on the cultural map with American Graffiti. Now Modesto has become a feast for the eyes. Start in downtown and leave time for more of the 100 public works of art in Modesto!
