On buildings and under a bridge, head-turning murals covering downtown West Palm Beach
You might have noticed artists at work on outside murals around downtown West Palm Beach this week. It’s part of the CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show, a 14-day event that started Sunday.
Here’s a sampling of iPhone images taken today of some of the 20 large-scale murals in the works.

As they watch artist Sean Yoro under the Royal Park Bridge, three Palm Beach Atlantic University students provided audio entertainment with their ukuleles. (Left to right) Priscilla Cerquiera, Alysa Luching and Michael Leonard had no idea a mural was being painted; they came to the spot under the bridge because of its unique acoustics. They said Yoro told them he immediately recognized their instruments because he grew up in Hawaii.
