Candace Galvan

Local resident Joan Day was driving through Downey last week when she spotted Candace Galvan completing her patriotic painting on one of Downey's many electrical boxes. Part of Downey's art in public places projects, artists have been commissioned to beautify the city. "Many other cities have taken on similar art projects, which gives artists a way to express ideas presented to them...," Day said. ********** Published: October 20, 2011 - Volume 10 - Issue 27
