Arts for Action and partners take 2nd place at Ventura’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade

San Patricio Banner

IN LOVING MEMORY OF THE SAN PATRICIO BATTALION

WHO DIED FOR HONOR AND COUNTRY!

Arts for Action worked with the Under the Sun Gallery and the Bell Arts factory to create this large work for the parade.  This work will find a home at the Bell Arts Factory.

Hueneme High students hold the lead banner for the San Patricio’s Battalion.  The students also attended the CINE LIBRE film showing about the subject the night before.

Arts for Action would like to very much thank all the people that helped put this daring project together.  We hope that next year we can take first place home with us.  We ask that you goggle the “The San Patricio’s Battalion and find out more history”.

Wonderful work from West in post production
