Every year, Georges Debouef wines holds a contest for the art that will be on their label for the most recent vintage of Debouef Beaujolais. The winner in 2018 with her work “Foolish Pleasure” was Chloé Meyer, an artist with roots in Nashville and San Franciso. How a mural version of it wound up outside of Nicky’ Coal Fired Pizza I’m not sure – whether they or the owners of the Stocking 51 building gave permission for it I do not know. Certainly, it’s a wonderful splash of color in an area that while gentrifying and increasingly full of outdoor art, still displays its industrial legacy strongly. It’s a nice reminder of summer in these winter days.
UPDATE: This mural has been replaced.
There’s also a “For Becks” lego man on the other side of Nicky’s, in the ramp going up to the local branch of Frothy Monkey. These have been popping up around town – see this example below.
Located at 5026 Centinneal Boulevard. There’s parking there and along 51st Avenue North.
