Fontana West near Tot Lot

here’s the scoop:

Remember last June when we told you about this project?  Here’s the link:  https://martinfontanaparksassociation.blog/2017/06/15/you-can-help-turn-the-eyesores-in-our-parks-into-works-of-art/.  We met the Artists on Feb. 10th of this year at the Almaden Community Center.

MFPA President Rod Carpenter hands out pins to the Artists present at the community meeting.

And they are:

Here’s the schedule:

May 19th – Artist design proposals will be unveiled at Martin-Fontana Parks Association’s annual Heart of the Park VIII event held in Jeffrey Fontana Park.

June 5th – The Public Art Committee will meet to review and approve the designs.

June 6th to November 30th – The Artists will be painting their designs on the vaults.

December – A dedication will be held.



Please note: None of this would have been possible without the support of

District 10 Councilmember Johnny Khamis and the City of San Jose’s Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program.
