On October 19, 2019 at 10am the City will host a dedication at The Skate Park to celebrate the completion of the Skate Park Public Art project, Inertia with artist Miguel A. Del Real and the community.
Art Project Background:
The City of Santa Clarita Arts Commission 2018 Work Plan and Public Art Proposal identified the Skate Park Public Art Project as a public art project, and in 2018, the Arts Commission gave approval for mural artist Miguel A. Del Real to carry out a skate park community engagement plan in order to create a project proposal. Miguel completed the community engagement plan in a three-day workshop from February 22 through February 24, 2019, in which Miguel received feedback from the skate community and led art workshops. With the community engagement plan completed, Miguel will begin the process of painting the skate park prior to the dedication.
