Guadalupe Mural Installation
On November 16, Arts Commission staff and arts preparators re-installed the recently restored Guadalupe Murals back to City Hall and their original location. The murals were created by internationally recognized muralist Judy Baca and the community of Guadalupe back in 1989.
The murals were removed in 2003 for restoration at the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) in Venice, California under the guidance of Ms. Baca. The Murals were recently completed and returned to Santa Barbara County through funding support of the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, the Mammel Foundation, the Santa Barbara Foundation and Guadalupe Cultural Arts and Education Center.
A rededication and community celebration of the Guadalupe Murals was held at 2 PM on December 11th at City Hall.
