On Coyote Care Day, April 18, the Seccombe Lake Mural Project launched. This amazing day was thanks to Cal State San Bernardino’s Office of Community Engagement, Inland Empire Job Corps, South Coast Air Quality Management District, San Bernardino Arts Association, San Bernardino Historical Society, Mitla Cafe, Super Burrito, UCR Community Gardens, twenty individual donors, sixty volunteers, and thirty local muralists. Eight murals were completed, eight murals are currently in progress, and 16 more murals are expected. For over a year, SBGN members alongside Alpha Gamma Sigma Delta, Puente Club San Bernardino Valley College, and Facebook volunteers, have committed to picking up trash, sweeping sidewalks, raking the playground area, and removing debris from the lake at the 44-acre park. With support from the City of San Bernardino’s Fine Arts Commission and Parks & Recreation Commission, the group is inviting the community to partake in these historic cultural events to bring art to Seccombe Lake Park. The mural project is split into three phases: the launch on April 18, an event on May 16, and finishing touches on May 30. To support, please visit www.youcaring.com/SeccombeLakeParkMurals
