Santa Monica is an arts and culture hub, home to 150+ street art murals all within its 8.3 square miles and eight neighborhoods.

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.

Santa Monica Beach mural

Parking Structure One, 1234 4th St
When I was initially contacted by the Milken Family Foundation about the mural on the side of the parking structure, the challenge was: What would it be and be about? At the time, I had been living for years in Ocean Park about a half block from the beach & parking lot, where one can walk right down to the beach. But Downtown Santa Monica, although it is a beach city, is separated from the beach by the Palisades cliffs. So, the idea of my mural is to bring the beach experience, both historical and contemporary, up into Downtown Santa Monica— to make the beach experience part of the downtown. So the people who work at the Milken Family Foundation can look out their windows and have a beach experience, instead of seeing nothing but a blank, concrete block wall. And passersby in the city can get a taste of life on the beach as well. – Art Mortimer
