Around town: New mural in Colusa


Artist Laura Kate James on Monday paints a mural on the side of the Colusa Optometry building on Jay Street, which once housed her grandfather’s practice. The agriculture-themed mural reflects the crops growing around Colusa. Once finished, the painting will give nod to the 150th anniversary of the city’s incorporation, June 16, 1868, which was recently celebrated.
