    The response to the downtown “fence gallery” has been so positive that organizers are trying to figure out how local artists can do a similar project every year.

    “When I came out of the stall I looked at them and was like, “oh, I know, we don’t like it either,’” Chavez said. “I was really embarrassed.”
