There's a brand new mural going up near Fair Oaks Elementary School! It falls under the work of the North Fair Oaks Forward Outreach Team that I requested in 2013, my first year in office.
This project, initiated by the North Fair Oaks Public Art Workgroup, is underway following a public invitation for a Call for Artists and approval of the artwork selected by the North Fair Oaks Community Council.
Muralist Nico Berry is a Bay Area resident with more than 20 years of experience. His mural is entitled, "I Am Somebody/Soy Alguien" and it celebrates the community's indomitable spirit. On one of those late sunny Fridays in January, Nico invited the schoolchildren to pick up a paintbrush and help him with the effort. You can imagine their excitement!
