Laurel tells us about her incredible new mural in Capitola:
“I designed my mural “Blue Monterey Bay” to celebrate the whales and dolphins found in our area. The mural is painted on the Cinelux Theater on 41st Avenue in Capitola. It replaces the old and faded humpback mural that used to be there, but I wanted to keep the same idea of whales and wildlife because everyone really loved those old whales! I painted the mural in partnership with the Regional Artisans’ Association and the help of dozens of volunteer painters from the community. It became a great event and people have been really positive about the end result!”
“I’ve lived and worked in Santa Cruz for about nine years. I paint murals and make art full-time. I’m always looking for great walls that need some love. Santa Cruz is such a supportive place for artists and I’m happy that with this mural I’ve been able to reach a wider audience than ever!”
