Help our Environment: Ideas From Santa Cruz, San Francisco, New York City, and Missouri Towns

Where will you find this art piece?

I found this (puppy dog) on of one of those large boxes you see near traffic intersections on roads - the boxes that control traffic light signals.  Another art piece I found below:

Thank you Santa Cruz CA for this Art Image courtesy of D West

I like how communities are working with local artists and residents to create solutions that beautify and help our environment. Every time I drive over to Santa Cruz, CA, I find a new art addition ~ remember my first post, “Local Art Gems in Santa Cruz.” 

Do you know that recycled materials were used in the construction of the walls of one of the restaurants in Santana Row – Shopping neighborhood in Silicon Valley? Which restaurant?


I took this picture of the California Academy of Sciences Museum in San Francisco showing the sustainable design of architecture – be sure to go see this on your next visit.  How long did it take to plan the design? (Please excuse the window reflection below)

I love reading about New York City’s High Line project of the public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side and the development of old railroad paths along Katy Trail through Missouri.
