Monterey Off The Beaten Path: 71 reviews and 221 photos
My favorite Monterey Mural is on the Monterey Conference Center, at the corner of Del Monte and Pacific Streets. Called "The Monterey Mural," it is a giant tile mural created by artist Guillermo Wagner Granizo in 1984.
The big blue mural at the corner of Cannery Row and Reeside St shows the Monterey Bay's sea life including blue whales, sea lions, a manta ray, a shark and octopuses.
Monterey Fire Station #1 along Pacific and Madison Streets has a mural depicting Monterey during Spanish rule. This mural was painted in 1998 by Jessica Williford and eight other local teenagers. They spent some two months and 320 hours on the mural as part of a county-wide project that created new murals in 12 towns.
The Monterey Post Office on Hartnell St has murals depicting the John D. Sloat and Sebastian Viscaino landings in Monterey.
Fort Ord also has a number of murals painted by former soldiers, many of which are now on the CSUMB campus.
Pacific Grove also has a historic mural along the recreation trail near Lovers Point highlighting the town's Native Indians, Tent City, Chinese Village, and Abalone Fishermen.
