Santa Monica Tribute Mural by Ruben Rojas
Santa Monica High School, Olympic Blvd at 6th St
In October 2018, Beautify Earth took the opportunity to say thanks for all of the love and support that they said the City of Santa Monica – the city they started in – has given them. In honor of that, they created this tribute mural to Santa Monica. It’s approximately 1/4 mile long and is visible to everyone passing by on the 10 Freeway.

10,000 Buddhas by Amanda Giacomini

Ten Thousand Buddhas is an art project that was started by artist and yoga teacher Amanda Giacomini. Giacomini visited India’s Ajanta Caves, a sacred spot that is the site of 29 rock-cut Buddhist Cave monuments. Inspired by this trip, she began the 10,000 Buddhas Project, setting out to paint 10,000 Buddhas as pieces of public art around the world.
