The Sacramento Farmer’s Market is held under the i50 freeway at 7/8th streets. An unlovely location of pot-holed tarmac and blank forbidding concrete overhead, with the incessant (even on a Sunday) rumble and sussuration of East/West traffic.

Bright Underbelly is a 70,000 square-foot mural, giving a nod to Sacramento as the City of Trees.  It depicts the blue sky as seen through a lush tree canopy. The four seasons of the canopy are tied together by an arching lunar cycle and are dotted with season-appropriate bird and insect life.

The artists are mural artist team Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel (http://lcstudiotutto.com) and project manager Tre Borden.
