Public art contributors Nancy and Gary Harrington will lead a free public art walk of the south end of downtown Pleasanton starting at 8:30 a.m. today.
The walking tour will start at the Pleasanton Civic Center parking lot, 200 Old Bernal Ave., and proceed through the public library plaza, Civic Park, Centennial Park and into downtown Pleasanton south of Neal Street. Free art walk brochures will be given.
Along the way, the walking group will view some 15 public art pieces, including three new works, and hear fascinating, sometimes funny stories about them.
A local artist is expected to talk about his public art and walkers will hear about a ghost who drives a Wells Fargo stagecoach.
The Harringtons also will discuss the history of their Harrington Art Partnership and how the public, businesses, and organizations can assist in bringing more public art to Pleasanton.
