Last Sunday, more than 160 community members and leaders came together to create new artwork, organized by the Folsom Boulevard Beautification Collaboration, that honors the people and their contributions to the Southeast Sacramento area. The location of the mural is 8581 Kiefer Road location, where you can continue to watch the artists transform and complete the project until the end of May.
This new mural depicts the Nisenan Indigenous Tribes, the Japanese farmers who made this area the strawberry capital of the world before WWII, the American River, and Sacramento State's academia and athletes who shape the future. The artists are John Osgood, Jolene Russell, Sharon Norton, and GuoXiang.
“Thank you to all the community members that showed up for our Community Mural Paint Day event! A very special shout out to the Folsom Blvd Revitalization Coalition, Sacramento State, Power Inn Alliance and Brothers Pluming for making this mural possible,” states Mayor Pro Tem Eric Guerra. “This project is a testament to the positive change that can happen when an energetic group of individuals ignite their community. Their efforts will provide lasting benefits for all.”
The Folsom Blvd Beautification Collaboration is a partnership among the abovementioned groups, plus Community Murals Sacramento, and the College Glen Neighborhood Association.
