Student Mural to Be Dedicated at MacKenzie Park

The intricate mosaic took local students nearly three months to complete

An artistic mural will be dedicated at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 24 at MacKenzie Park, at State and De la Vine streets in Santa Barbara. The public is invited to attend.

The brightly colored mosaic mural was installed on the retaining wall bordering the children’s playground.

The mural’s message is: “Peace, Love, One People, One Earth.”

The large art piece was completed by students from area junior and senior high schools, and the Leadership Club of Santa Barbara Middle School.

The intricate design took nearly three months to compete. Local artist Tami Zweig volunteered her time to guide the students, and the materials were paid for by the Santa Barbara Police Activities League and the Kiwanis Club.

This project was co-sponsored by the PAL and the Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department.

— Paul McCaffrey is a public information officer for the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
