CONCORD, CA (June 13, 2022) — Concord’s much anticipated public arts program kicked off this weekend with an art “jam” in Todos Santos Park. The community event lasted two-days.

Local artists created movable 8’x8’ murals at the park. At the same time, nationally known professional artists, two of which are Concord natives, began creating building-sized works in nine locations around the city.

Visit Concord conceived the project to encourage pride and a strong sense of community identity. The week-long celebration concludes with the popular outdoor Head West Marketplace June 25. Next, the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps will perform in Todos Santos June 26, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. to cap things off.

You can find the mural installations downtown and at The Veranda Shopping Center. A map and self-guided tour is available. For a schedule of the weeks events and more information on the artists go to VisitConcord.com
