Walking around downtown San Jose, we came across this colorfully painted building. We think it's wonderful. Would you do this to your business?

Since we originally posted about this building, we've found out more about it.

Artist: Kristin Farr

Location: The Learning Center at 490 W San Carlos, San Jose, CA.

when there is a big blank wall it is a great target for taggers. Painting it like this appears to decrease tagging. I think it is great fun!
