SPRING GARDEN PARTIES & MURAL MAGIC IN EXETER, CALIFORNIA

From orange blossoms to garden walks, Sandy Blankenship – Exeter Chamber of Commerce and Diane Hayes – Sequoia Riverlands Trust, chat with Big Blend Radio about all the fun spring events and activities in Exeter, California.

Exeter, a gateway destination to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in central California, is known as one of America’s Prettiest Painted Places due to its Downtown Mural Tour. The historic brick buildings make a great surface for the 30+ large murals you will find as you stroll throughout Exeter’s charming downtown district. The murals were painted by professional muralists from all over the country. This unique outdoor gallery reflect the history and culture of this pretty little town. The town adds 2-3 murals every year, through the efforts of the volunteer group, “Exeter-A Festival of Arts.” The murals depict the history and spirit of Exeter, and each one has hidden symbol or image. You can arrange for mural tours through the Exeter Chamber of Commerce – call (559) 592-2919 or visit www.ExeterChamber.com.

 

 

Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview while you piece together this online jigsaw puzzle of the Mural #32. “Anna’s Flowers” by local artist Christie Caldwell.  The mural shows a tranquil scene typically found throughout Exeter’s foothills, featuring native wildflowers such as Lupine, Columbine and Mariposa Lilies, plus, Anna’s Hummingbirds.  Anna’s Hummingbird is a medium-sized hummingbird native to the west coast of North America, that was named after Anna Masséna, Duchess of Rivoli. In the early 20th century, Anna’s hummingbirds bred only in northern Baja California and southern California.
