9th St. Mural, Regatta videos

September is almost gone… but we had a great month. The 9th Street Mural has brightened up the path between St. Rose and West End Neighborhoods. The Great West End and Railroad Square was fabulous. Videos and photos for you to enjoy:

9th Street Community Mural: 2 years of work went into making the mural a reality. The Mural Committee members: Denise Hill from St. Rose Neighborhood & Sher Ennis and Lea Barron-Thomas from West End Neighborhood started the project in the Summer of 2009. This video shows that 2 years in about 2 minutes:  VIDEO



The Mural was funded by a City of Santa Rosa CAB grant. Mario Uribe created the design. ArtStart  was on hand to train the volunteers to use the stencils. We would also like to thank: Friedman’s for graciously donating all the paint. The Coffee Girls for providing delicious coffee to our hardworking volunteers.   Our wonderful community volunteers: Ellen Nanni, Roberto Vargas, Rubi Lopez, Ed Lopez, Ana Lopez, Deisy Vargas, Maribel Castellanos, Brigitte Carter, Vince Harper, Amy Staten-Custodio, Tom Hermans, Jann Samuels, Joe Lilienthal, Kim Hall, Roxanne Trujillo, Jennifer Watson, Karen Spencer, JoAnne Cohn, Yukary Torres, Adan Rodriguez, Hannah Bartee, Guy & Carol Dean, Deborah Crippen, Fred Dodge, Patrice Galvin, James C. Gimenez, Ken Pinney, Jeff Tayle, Anna Michnicka, Evan Osborn, Karen Morgan, Alex Morgan, Marilyn Hughes, Dave Drake, Betsy Hall, Gene Wright Ken Risling, Kate Sholl, Jeff & Lee Finkle & Allen Thomas.
