|In the alley/back street to the back entrance of the public clinic of Atenas is this graffiti + the next photos|

There is a lot of this kind of graffiti or "public art" in Atenas. I don't know the origin or if someone is helping to keep kids out of trouble, or art class projects, "professional artists," or what? But it is interesting for a small rural town and does add a lot of color to the community. If you go to the front door of the clinic you might not see these, but this door is more convenient for most of us walkers which is most of the patients!
I personally like "Public Art" for all cities and towns even when the style or images are not appealing to me. It seems prudent to me for a community to have a local committee or Art Commission as my former hometown of Nashville had to manage it, the locations, and even the nature of the art. I do not know if Atenas has such a group.
