Clean Oceans Mural - Mission Street

Paint on concrete

Initially conceived by Jim “Homer” Holm, founder of Clean Oceans International, and Taylor Reinhold— the City was contacted last year for permission to do a mural along that wall. Through a process of discovery, the City realized that the School District owned the wall. Bay View Elementary staff and the Superintendent’s Office were brought into the conversation and the Santa Cruz City School Board unanimously approved the project in February, 2018. The City of Santa Cruz contributed $20,000 through the City Arts Mural Matching Grant program and the School District has contributed in-kind funds already set aside for maintenance of the wall along. The Newman Foundation committed funds and the artists raised over $10,000.
