I was driving from Montrose headed to Grand Junction, heading north on busy U.S. 50 / Main Street through the center of the small city of Delta, Colorado, when a mural on my left caught my eye. I pulled over and got out of my car to take a look.
Then a closer look.
Amazing. I turned the corner. And there was another mural.
Then another across the street.
And another, a tribute to the area's fruit growers.
Not to mention fascinating sculptures at intersections. Here's one.
After getting a chance to go online, I found out some information about the murals and sculptures I saw. You can go online and see some of the other works the grace Delta's building walls & streets.
Here's who did the works I've highlighted -- from top to bottom: the Opera House by Richard Doherty (on the spot where the Opera House Building originally stood); The Hardware Store, also by Richard Doherty (on the wall of Delta's hardware store); Homage to Delta's Diversity by Emanuel Martinez (depicting the history of the region's Hispanic community); Fruitgrowers Labels by Connie Williams; and Enchanted, a sculpture by Joyce Killebrew.
