Mural Design Chosen by Community Members

Pasadena artist, Luis Ituarte, (www.luisituarte.com), received a grant from the City of Pasadena Arts and Culture Commission to create art work for their newly created "Neighborhood Enhancement Mural Project." The grant required that the artist select a business and get the owner's permission to place a mural on their building. Ituarte chose The Pasadena Fish Market and Restaurant, 181 E. Orange Grove Boulevard, and owner, Clifford Douglas, agreed to be part of the project. Councilmember Chris Holden is pleased that the mural will be located in District three, which he represents.Mural

Ituarte wanted community members and other interested parties to have an opportunity to pick one of his five designs displayed via digital image projection.

He invited community residents and others to join him on Sunday, August 23rd at the Fish Market. There were 23 attendees with families including a range from teenagers to seniors. The lively group chose a design entitled, "Cool Succulents." The meeting was scheduled from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., but continued until 5:00 p.m. There was lots of conversation and connecting as attendees enjoyed refreshments.
