Projects

The Alliance for San Juan Art advocates an initiative to commission and place more Art in the Public Square in San Juan Capistrano that is accessible by the public and very visible. The performing arts and temporary art should also be a part of Art in the Public Square. Such an initiative requires broad support and passionate advocates to make it a reality.

MURALS

Murals similar to the one next to Hennessey's Tavern that visually depicts the history of San Juan Capistrano may be installed on buildings in the downtown area with owner's permission. Funding for tile panels will be from funds that TASJA has dedicated to this project and from expected grants.

Painted Utility Box

UTILITY BOXES

A modest expense approach expresses Art in the Public Square by painting our Utility Boxes. Many cities have created such art objects. San Clemente has done a commendable job using a car theme. Costa Mesa, LA, Glendale, and Santa Ana also have city-sanctioned painted utility boxes. Often, they provide an honorarium to artists who want to participate. Dana Point has recently approved an additional 14 boxes.

PERFORMANCE ART

TASJA is sponsoring short plays of 10 to 15 minutes by the Round About Players. These plays are performed in Los Rios Park twice a day on Saturdays. Round About Players was formed by Tom Scott and Beverly Blake.
