Artist Greg Brown performed restoration work over the weekend on "Man Pushing Cat in Stroller," his fanciful mural in downtown Palo Alto.
In June, the Palo Alto Public Art Commission voted to allocate $500 for Brown to complete the restoration work. The mural is part of the Art in Public Places Collection maintained by the commission.
The painting originally depicted a cat being wheeled, hence the title, but was subsequently changed by Brown and is now alternately known as "Spiro Agnew Pushing Alien in Stroller."
At least 14 other whimsical Brown murals grace the walls of buildings of downtown Palo Alto, including "Secret Agent Man With Bird on Hat," "Pelican with Money" and "Nun with Toy Airplane."
