One of America’s Prettiest Painted Places, Exeter is a gateway destination to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in central California, and features a beautiful downtown mural tour. The historic brick buildings make a great surface for the 30+ large murals you will find as you stroll throughout the charming downtown district. The murals were painted by professional muralists from all over the country, and each one features a hidden symbol or image. Along with bronze sculptures, this unique outdoor gallery reflects the history and spirit of Exeter. You can learn more or arrange for mural tours through the Exeter Chamber of Commerce – call (559) 592-2919 or visit www.ExeterChamber.com.

Enjoy the Big Blend Radio interview with Sandy Blankenship while you piece together this jigsaw puzzle of the Exeter mural “People Behind the Label” by Twentynine Palms, CA artist Chuck Caplinger. This mural reminds us that Emperor Grapes were once of great economic importance to Exeter. It also illustrates the economic importance of two local families. Can you find a California Black Bear and a Dachshund?
