One of the more culturally and artistically rich areas in Western Massachusetts (and there are a lot of them out there), Northampton is a great place to walk around and take in the street art.
This art is on Main St on a bridge along the Norwottuck Bike Trail in the heart of Northampton.
You can find art around just about any corner in Northampton. This mural was located in an alley off Pleasant St.
This mural is on the side of Millennium Liquors, also on Pleasant St. I noticed it on the drive into Northampton and I also noticed it is fading. So, I wanted to photograph it while I still had the chance.
It was a beautiful day outside and Smith College was holding their commencement the day I was visiting so the city was bustling. It always makes me smile when I see a new crop of students graduating. To me, it seems liek it’s not officially summer until the graduations and weddings start. People were also enjoying the warm weather bt dining outside or sitting on a bench.
Dogs like to look at the street art, also. Katama is a two and a half year old Samoyed. This beautiful can be found on Instagram at katamadog,
