Kern River Valley Public Art

 

pubic art

KRVAA’s Public Art Program continues to beautify our Kern River Valley buildings and communities. That’s because these striking murals reflect the scenic beauty and majestic nature of the place we call home.

Public art projects are important. They stimulate conversation and encourage us to relate to each other through art in the environment. Bringing art into a community creates a greater sense of belonging to an interesting place. The quality of life is improved by public art. Public art makes a difference in visitor appreciation of the communities they visit. Tourism is encouraged by public art.

Murals have been a part of this community for many many years. They are found in hospitals, at businesses and in public settings. Some are very old  and have been rediscovered.  The Kern River Valley Art Association, a local non-profit, has served Kern River Valley since 1962. Many KRVAA members actively promote arts education, including public art. Our volunteers work to bring more creativity to our schools. We have several murals here for you to discover, and new ones are in the works.

The Google Mural Map is part of Kern River Valley Art Association’s Public Art Program. This is an ongoing project to help promote points of interest, local artists and crafts people. These projects are made possible through support from KRVAA members, Kern Community FoundationArts Council of Kern, Kern County Board of Supervisors and others. Enjoy!
