City of Industry (Sculptures)

We've been touring our (temp) hometown of Emeryville whenever time and weather allows. It's a small place, with a lot of interesting history and buildings.

We noticed this gem before we even signed our lease. It's not the only reason we live here, but it definitely didn't hurt. The building is actually a working office for PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric for those of you who've never lived in California or are just not so great at acronyms).

There are two sections with three scenes per section. We're not sure what these murals are called, so we've decided to name each scene for you:

Brighty of the Grand Canyon's Cousin (It's a long story, Karen really liked that book as a small child.)

Flames of Industry (that's probably it's real name, we should really Google things before writing posts.)

Daniel Plainview's Alternate Life Story

Whew, three more left!

 Salmon Voyeur

 Just Before Dr. Frankenstein Animates His Monster

Crazy Lines (apparently one of M.C. Escher's first drafts)
