CleanCA Gateway & Mural Project

CalTrans Clean California Initiative: Gateway and Mural Project

Mariposa County and Mariposa Arts Council have been awarded funding from CalTrans Clean CA statewide initiative for a new public art project: Two gateway features at Mariposa’s main highway intersections, and two murals on prominent buildings in town. 

The project team – planners, designers and artists contracted by the County – are exploring themes that reflect Mariposans’ relationship with the natural landscapes that are important the identity and sense of place of our community.

Between Jan. 16 – Feb. 17, 2023, the community offered feedback on initial designs concepts through a series of stakeholder engagement opportunities. We received over 200 responses and data is currently being packaged to share with the project artists and design team. Thank everyone who participated in this process!
