“Metal sculptures - eye sore”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The street art is poorly done and not worth a visit. Permanent, somewhat childish art in the front yards of several homes is very strange.

“A whimsical walk that will put a smile on your face”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This fun street in this quaint little town is a blast. Many of the homes have sculptures from a local artist. These sculptures are the reason to visit Florence Ave. Don't drive the street. Bring your camera, park at one end and take time to get out and walk. It will take less than an hour, but you will find yourself lingering longer than you planned.

The sculptures are colorful and show fun personality. The real fun is getting up close and seeing the materials used in their creation. Look at the items on Batman's utility belt. A clock for an eye on the baseball player. A caster and a flashlight as noses for the campers. The closer you look, the more creativity you see. This was a great diversion in a trip to the area. And...it's free!

“Visit this street”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Stop by Renga Arts first and then head to Florence for a most amazing display of art! Don't forget to head to a local store to get Patrick's latest calendar, donation for the schools of Sebastopol. He is truly amazing!!!!

“Fun and fast”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I drive this street at least weekly although I am careful about when as it is kind of narrow and there are often cars sightseeing at certain times of day/week. No big deal but I am trying to get across town and have seen the sculptures many times. They are way cool and much fun. Make you laugfh out loud. To drive slowly by takes only a few minutes and it can be walked in 10-15 minutes, depending on how many pictures you take.

“Folk Art Parade”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Florence Ave.is probably the best known street in Sebastopol for it's delightfully funny and amusing sculptures by artist Patrick Amiot.From Batman to Babe Ruth and everthing in between.Whimsical and enjoyment is best described as a slow walk down this unique street in Sebastopol.Take your camera and be prepared to smile.
