Urban art at the Albany Bulb, CA

The Albany Bulb is a former landfill largely owned by the City of Albany, in California. The peninsula is well-known for its urban art including mural, stencil, graffiti, sculpture, and installation art. Sculptor and activist lawyer Osha Neumann has created some of the largest works. He often collaborates with his son-in-law Jason DeAntonis. Sniff, a group of artists composed of Scott Hewitt, Scott Meadows and David Ryan, painted large, highly imaginative “murals” on wood and erected more sculptures on the northwest corner of The Bulb.

If you want to learn more about the Bulb, I’d recommend this entry on Atlas Obscura and this report on one of its former residents.
