While at Five Points...

If you haven't been to Five Points (south of downtown, where Stone and 6th Avenues meet) — or haven't been recently — there's a lot happening! This month a new sculpture of Cesar Chavez, plus arches over the five streets that meet at the intersection, are due to be dedicated. You can eat, shop, stay, and go to one of the new buildings sprouting up all over.

While I'm at it, here's a photo of the sculpture and one of the arches, looking northwest. The sculptor was Luis Mena, who's also painted a number of murals around town:
One block northwest along Stone is an office that looks like a house. It's been there for years, and it has some nice tile murals on front. (Although you can enter from Stone, the building is actually on Russell Avenue.)
Now the murals, left to right, followed by the artist's signature from the third mural:

The business here is Carly Quinn Designs.

I took the photo of the building front on November 18, 2020 and the rest on February 19, 2021.
