Live from the Mural Wall

Members of Arts for Action are painting a mural in South Oxnard.  The mural is inspired by the life stories of 150 community members that were united for a weekend cultural event.

Join us for a BBQ every Wednesday in May and June at the mural wall (Rodeo Community Center, 451 West Hueneme Road in Oxnard).  Bring by something to grill, hang out, eat, check out the mural, play some handball, and contribute your creativity to the mural effort.

If you can’t make it out, don’t worry, we’ll be posting pictures of the mural project live on our website.

The grid technique made transfering the image from the paper to the wall much easier.
