More Carlsbad Wall Murals

Below are a couple more wall murals that I saw on my walk through the Barrio/Carlsbad Village area of Carlsbad.  There are still several more to find and view on another trip!



Carlsbad Wall Murals

A friend showed me around the Barrio/Carlsbad Village area of Carlsbad recently and I was intrigued by the many wall murals that are present.  This is probably my favorite, which is at the corner of Carlsbad Blvd and Grand Avenue, and is by Oceanside artist Michael Summers.
