Popular North County Alley Mural Project In Escondido Expands With Unveiling

Esco Alley Art, a multi-phase outdoor mural project off Grand Avenue in Escondido with the goal of creating public art and continuing to make the city of Escondido a destination for the arts, community, and vitality, is expanding.

This phase – with an additional 15+ pieces – will be unveiled on Saturday, Aug. 13.

Celebrating Escondido’s vibrant arts & culture

Presented by the Escondido Downtown Business Association, the project launched last summer in three separate phases and unveiled a total of 33 large paintings in the alley south of Grand Avenue between Broadway and Maple.

On Saturday, Aug. 13, 15+ additional pieces will be revealed in the alley south of Grand Avenue between Broadway and Kalmia.

The community is invited to see the newest additions to the project while enjoying live music and a chance to meet and talk with the artists.

The project coincides with Escondido’s monthly “2nd Saturday Art Walk,” celebrating Escondido’s vibrant arts and culture. The self-guided tour includes the wondrously eclectic art galleries of Escondido’s historic downtown, as well as interactive arts, theatre, museums, and educational experiences all around the area.

Art for all

“The beauty of this project is that it is outdoors for all to enjoy,” said Carol Rogers, co-owner of Stone & Glass, a local downtown business and project sponsor, and Escondido Downtown Business Association board member. “We believe that art should be for all, and by all. The works are eclectic by a variety of artists and we’re so proud of what Escondido has to offer.”

The concept for the project started with Heather Moe of Design Moe Kitchen and Bath, who collaborated with several local business owners, many of whom are Escondido-based artists.

A team of volunteers regularly engages with local artists and Downtown Escondido property owners to provide both the art and outdoor gallery spaces for the enjoyment of residents and visitors of Escondido alike.

This unique, outdoor art gallery not only offers a showcase for artists, but it adds to the growing economy of downtown Escondido.
