A public support demonstration will be held today, Sept. 6 from 12-1 pm at noted artist Jane Golden’s 1978 “Muir Woods” mural in Santa Monica, which is located at the corner of Lincoln Blvd. and Ocean Park Blvd.
Organizers ask the community to attend to inscribe a positive message on a 4′ by 20′ large ‘Save the Muir Woods Mural’ message card.
SMMUSD officials are proposing a new painting for the mural, which is located on the side of an Olympic High building.
Peace activist Jerry Rubin said the larger message card would be presented publicly to the Santa Monica Board of Education in hope of getting the School Board and Superintendent’s positive support for a win-win outcome.
Rubin said today’s event is being sponsored by the Campaign to Save the Muir Woods Mural.
He said this year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of John Muir, the renowned preservationist, nature lover and Sierra Club founder, who the mural was dedicated to and who passed away on Dec. 24, 1914 at a hospital in Los Angeles.
