Bon Air invites the community to watch public art being created when local artist Yuan Chen paints water-themed murals on the plywood covers of our two large water features. Turned off and emptied due to the ongoing drought, Chen will paint the plywood ‘canvas’ that covers each fountain, ensuring public safety. The 18-foot round fountain will have a koi pond motif and the six-foot linear fountain, a creek motif featuring flowing water, rocks, frogs, salamanders and other creek flora and fauna. Yuan Chen is an award-winning Marin County-based artist who has worked on many Marin public art projects including the recently completed Canal mural project and public utility boxes. Her work has been exhibited since 2010 and she holds an MFA in Studio Art from UC Davis. Chen is a member of Marin Open Studios that has been supported by Bon Air for years.
