Guadalupe Mural Debut
One of the Squire Foundation’s Artists in Residence, Ruben Espinoza, will soon begin working to install a new temporary mural on the side of the former Far Western Tavern building.
The mural will be the result of a collaborative effort between Santa Barbara’s Squire Foundation Artist in Residence Program and the Dunes Center in Guadalupe with the goal of sharing public art pieces that bring the community together.
Join the Dunes Center on Sunday, June 24th as it hosts a public event to celebrate local art with the unveiling of the new mural.
The painting, designed and installed by Ruben Espinoza, will be representative of the dynamic community of Guadalupe.
Ruben Espinoza is a local artist born and raised in Santa Maria and currently an Artist in Residence with the Squire Foundation. Espinoza’s work can be found around the Central Coast and Southern California and he is known for his installations that facilitate public engagement.
Though the event for the mural’s reveal is to be held on June 24, Espinoza will start working on the mural on Monday June 18. Visitors are encouraged to come watch the mural’s progress and post photos on social media with the hashtag: #thesquirefoundationpublicart
There will also be live music and arts and crafts!
