Postcards of Santa Barbara Public Art Mural Celebration
When: 5th September 2015
What Time: 4:00pm
Where: 121 State Street @ The Indigo Hotel / La Entrada part of State Street.
On September 5th, 4:00pm at the Indigo Hotel (121 State Street) Mayor Helene Schneider on behalf of the City of Santa Barbara and in collaboration with Youth Interactive, will unveil sixteen 8’ x 6’ murals from the Postcards of Santa Barbara Public Art Mural Project. Youth Interactive is a 501(c)(3) that serves as a creative entrepreneurship academy bridging the economic and opportunity divides by creating youth led business though the arts.
This one of its kind collaborative within the Santa Barbara art community would not be possible without our generous benefactors which include Santa Barbara Beautiful, The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and The Santa Barbara Foundation. These murals will serve to beautify the lower block of State Street by covering the construction project taking place next to the Indigo Hotel for one year. The September 5th ribbon cutting ceremony will include music from a Mariachi band, canapés and a street celebration with the Santa Barbara community and art enthusiasts.
Please join us in thanking our collaborative working partners which include The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, The Arts Collaborative, The Downtown Organization, The Historical Landmark Committee, VAAP Advisory and Woodbridge Capital. Moreover, we would love thank Marborg, Art Essentials and The Food bank for their generous sponsorship for this project.
Youth Interactive is located in the Funk Zone at 209 Anacapa Street where a youth-run retail shop and studio is open 6 days a week.
