Public Art Mural Gains Support

Public Art Mural Gains Support

The Community Foundation of San Benito County supports public art projects that involve and engage with local artists, residents, youth volunteer groups, and other contributors. With this in mind, we have awarded a grant to a team of local artists in their effort to enrich Hollister’s art culture.

Public art, in many ways, bridges the gap between generations and entices residents to support the local art culture and many artists seek support from local residents, community leaders, public officials, business owners, and organizations. This team of artists, in particular, strongly believes in the value and impact of supporting the art culture in our community. Projects like this support, embrace, and pave the way for a much more vibrant and diverse community. Orabuena, Esqueda, and Resendiz encourage the public to provide input and support as it relates to local art. Input from residents will help the team have a better understanding of the needs and wants of the community.

Please take two minutes and answer the following eight questions in this survey. The information you provide will be listened to and considered. You’ll hear back from the survey results on BenitoLink in the upcoming weeks.

Contact the Community Foundation of San Benito County if you would like to support public art projects.

Stay tuned for the grand unveiling of this project.
