City's newest mural: 'Live Well, Be Well'

Pleasanton Vice Mayor Arne Olson and City Councilman Jerry Pentin were joined by Kaiser Permanente staff and Gary and Nancy Harrington at the recent unveiling of "Live Well, Be Well," a new mural for Pleasanton's growing public art collection.

When Kaiser approached the city for help in creating a more welcoming entrance to the facility for pediatric services at 7601 Stoneridge Drive, Pleasanton reached out to the Harringtons, who are active art donors to the city, to see if they would like to help.

A call for artists for a mural went out, resulting in 47 submissions from all over the country, but Pleasanton artist Mark Shawver was chosen for his design, which showcases healthy life choices and iconic Pleasanton locations.

I saw the mural last week as I was walking into Kaiser's North Building and was very happy to see it. Now I know the story of why it is there and the artist's name it makes it even better. It is bright and put a smile on my face!
