Current Projects

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.

Utility Boxes

A modest expense approach expresses Art in the Public Square by painting our Utility Boxes. Many other cities have created such art objects. San Clemente for one, 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 to be wrapped
