Carlsbad Art Wall February 2024

Art in Carlsbad

The 2nd Carlsbad Art Wall mural for 2024 was completed this past weekend. North County artist Steve Burrows, who hails from Encinitas, transformed the wall in his whimsical style that reflects his life and business, Burrito Art, at the beach. As a result it’s the perfect wall art for Carlsbad’s laid-back lifestyle by the sea!

This is the 40th mural since the founding of the Carlsbad Art Wall in 2015.

Carlsbad Art Wall for February 2024

The Carlsbad Art Wall was created by Carlsbad artist, Bryan Snyder, in cooperation with the owner of Senor Grubby’s Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad Village.

The Carlsbad Art Wall is an opportunity to enjoy temporary public art created by local, regional, and sometimes international artists.

Bryan Snyder also founded the Carlsbad Alley Art Wall, along with other art projects in Carlsbad. Bryan is also an art teacher at Valley Middle School in their Visual and Performing Arts Program.

While you may not have heard the name, you likely have seen the murals at Senor Grubby’s Mexican Restaurant’s east-facing wall if you live here or have visited.

The Art Wall is just west of the train tracks, opposite the Carlsbad Village Faire Shopping Center, as you head to the beach.

Carlsbad’s reputation as an arts community is always changing. There is abundant public art (interactive map on the City of Carlsbad website) around town. You can enjoy multiple art galleries, and a performance theater. There are several annual arts and crafts fairs, and live music events throughout the year, especially around the holidays. The Art Wall is truly a special part of Carlsbad’s vibrant arts community!
