Isla Vista Mural Project Celebrating Third Creation


The Isla Vista Mural Project will celebrate its third creation at The Plaza Lofts — I.V.’s new apartment building on the corner of Pardall and Embarcadero del Mar — next Monday at 4 p.m. Facing Giovanni’s Pizza, the colorful panorama was the work of students in Urban Art Workshop, a course at UCSB last spring quarter. Students, professors, and landlords collaborated to bring art and culture back to the petite college town with the help of UCSB’s Community Housing Office (CHO), Isla Vista Arts, and the UC Institute for Research in the Arts. As management companies change, a CHO rep said, old murals often get painted over, so efforts to ensure art in town persists are crucial.
