Most of the time you need to look up to see them, although there are times you can glimpse them at eye level.

Two cut-outs of musical men stand somewhere in Walnut Creek.

Have you seen them? Do you remember where they are?

Here's a hint: You won't be able to see them for much longer.

Thanks David, I hope these guys reappear. They look like native American paintings we saw in Lava Beds NM.

Indeed, these are "Kokopelli."

David...perhaps you can investigate just what needs to be done in order to save these wonderful "Kokopelli" artistic renderings for future generations to enjoy. Preserving pieces of Walnut Creek's history one piece at a time is critical. The "out with the old and in with the new" mentality is distressing. Thanks in advance.

I would agree with Bob that it would be nice to have the "boys" return somewhere in the Broadway Plaza after the renovation is done. They are whimsical art pieces but really have no place in the history of Walnut Creek as it was the Southwestern Native Americans who used Kokopelli in their culture. I do believe, if my aging brain remembers correctly, that these art pieces were added after the last iteration of the Plaza so they really haven't been in place for too many years. Writing to Macerich may help save the pieces.

Walnut Creek has many public works of art located in and around the downtown area. Art displayed publically automatically becomes a part of Walnut Creek's history. It doesn't have to have a connection to Walnut Creek per se. One prime example of that would be Seyed's "Fountainhead". The Public Art Program that is overseen by the Bedford Gallery should save these "musical men" that are enjoyed by many.
