La Picoletta Mural

The other mural highlighted on the Claremont WalkingIMG_1538 Tour covers the front of the former La Picoletta Restaurant which is now Uno*Tre*Otto. Tucked away in an alley between First and Second Streets just west of Indian Hill, this hidden building looks like it came straight out of the medieval Italy. Dan Van Clapp painted this building in 1993.

 

 

Hidden away behind a plant, and nearly washed out is this poster from communist times…

The sundial above the painted door actually has sunlight hitting it for the few days surrounding the summer solstice.
