Talented artist Jess Smart Smiley recently finished several incredible murals on tunnels in the Provo River Trail. Not only do the paintings do a wonderful job of representing Provo, they also discourage graffiti and are an excellent compliment to the signage added last year by Parks & Rec.
You can check out more information and photos on Jess’ website, a post from Mayor Curtis, or this story from KSL.
We still have gorgeous fall weather – so take some time out of your week to ride by and check out Jess’ art. Thanks for making Provo a better place to ride!
