Art in the Public Square - San Juan Capistrano
TASJA is committed to promote and sponsor public and visible art in San Juan Capistrano California by supporting emerging and established visual and performing artists for commissioned artworks in the public square, thereby providing civic pride for locals, educational opportunities for visitors, and economic benefits for the merchants.
An Initiative for Our Times
This initiative is intended to glorify the historical elements in San Juan Capistrano by the establishment of an Arts program that features permanent and public Art in the Public Square
San Juan is blessed with many cultural attributes. The Mission is the mainstay of these icons, there is a world-class rodeo and a rich historic presence. Together they attract thousands of visitors each year. We have an active Native American Community as well as a diverse population that seeks to enhance these cultural attributes.
However, while the city has noteworthy sculptures and murals, we are not generally known as an art community. “Binding Contract,” the sculpture on a Del Obispo hillside along with the murals and many fountains attest to artistic influences. We are surrounded by cities with significant art collections. Further Art in the Public Square will enhance our downtown, improve the business environment, and provide a further pride of place for our residents.
Public Artwork in San Juan Capistrano will have many positive results
