The power of paint is being put to the test in Rexland Acres Park and it’s not too late to become involved with this amazing project, which aims to bring the community, especially youth, to take ownership of the park.
“The theme of the mural is racial unity. We hope that this mural is something that the community can identify with,” said Gerald Cantu, one of the organizers of the project.
Bakersfield’s renowned artist, Jorge Guillen is creating the mural that youth will come together to paint.
The mural is being led by the Dolores Huerta Foundation, HOPE Now, and the Greenfield Walking Group as part of Building Healthy Communities South Kern’s work in recreation.
