Everyone gathered inside the Star Theatre and enjoyed food catered by Chronic Tacos, then returned outside to take a group photo for the ribbon cutting and the revealing of the mural. What a beautiful new addition to the community and all that will walk or drive by to see a one of a kind piece of art for tourists and locals.
The Oceanside Mural Initiative seeks to install ten curated public art murals over the course of three years in Downtown Oceanside
. OMI is a community driven initiative, and will integrate key partners in the downtown Oceanside area. Through this Initiative, Oceanside will become a destination for public art, will create a model by which Oceanside and other communities can fulfill community-driven arts initiatives, will act as a medium for education/community outreach, and will help to define Oceanside as a community whose identity is built upon and driven by the arts.
