There is a new large and resplendent mural on the front of Capistrano Plaza facing the heart of downtown San Juan Capistrano. This beautiful work of art is made up of seven separate bas-relief clay panels each of which depicts an event from the early history of San Juan Capistrano relating to the Mission and the founding of the Los Rios Historic District. The 11-foot high, 7-foot long mural was commissioned by property owner Dan Almquist and created by Randy Morgan, a prominent Laguna Beach artist. Each mural is titled as shown above and has a descriptive plaque describing its characterization. Due to space limitations on this page, only three of the seven can be displayed.
