Art patrons Nancy and Gary Harrington will lead two Saturday morning walks in the coming weeks to acquaint enthusiasts with public art works in Pleasanton.
These are the only two walks the Harringtons will lead this year, and they feature frequent stops at sculptures and murals so walkers can view the art pieces and hear their stories.
The Saturday Morning Art Walks divide the city into north and south to view 36 art pieces, and brochures with maps will be distributed.
Both art walks begin in the city offices parking lot at 200 Old Bernal Ave. The North Art Walk starts at 9 a.m. next Saturday (March 9) and continues on Peters Avenue, north Neal Street, Main Street and the Firehouse Arts Center.
The South Art Walk leaves at 9 a.m. on April 13, and covers south Neal Street, Veterans Memorial Building, Main Street, Civic Park, First Street, Centennial Community Park (Senior Center) and the Pleasanton Public Library.
Twenty-three pieces of public art have been donated to the city through Another Harrington Art Partnership Piece for You, or Another H.A.P.P.Y. Nancy and Gary Harrington have also published a book, “Pleasanton’s Public Art,” which sells for $10.95, at Museum on Main, 603 Main St.
