Love of Goleta Results in New Mural, Dam Dinner

Last spring, the City hosted a Love of Goleta workshop in which participants shared what they love about Goleta and brainstormed ideas for how to engage the community even further. (Read more here.)  Two of these ideas came to fruition – the Dam Dinner and a mural in Old Town.

The Dam Dinner, held last August, invited people to share a meal at the Lake Los Carneros Dam.  The event was a huge success and planning is already underway for the 2014 Dam Dinner scheduled for August 23rd.

The mural in Old Town Goleta was recently completed thanks to a $500 donation from the Goleta Valley Art Association.  Artist Larry Maser created a beautiful design for the east wall of Santa Cruz Market.

This new artwork is in-line with the City Council’s Strategic Plan goal to “preserve and enhance the quality of life.” This includes a desire to develop a public/cultural arts program.
