The city of Santa Clarita is skating forward with the Santa Clarita Skate Park Public Art Project, which will create a permanent public art piece at the park. The City is asking for community input through an online survey to help determine the look and specific location for the design. The survey can be found at scskatepark.com.

The city of Santa Clarita Arts Commission 2018 Work Plan and Public Art Proposal, identified the Skate Park Public Art Project as a public art project, and in 2018, the Arts Commission gave approval for mural artist Miguel A. Del Real to carry out a skate park community engagement plan in order to create a project proposal.

“I’m looking forward to building connections with Santa Clarita’s skate park riders and listening to their voice. I want to involve them in the process of the design concept,” said Del Real. Del Real will be at the Skate Park on Friday, February 22 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to meet and greet the community, and answer any questions about the project.

Along with giving input for the design and location of the art piece, residents will also have the opportunity to sign up for design and paint workshops at the end of the survey. The workshops will be led by Del Real, who will teach attendees about urban art and painting techniques.

Based on availability, participants will be able to choose from either Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 a.m. until noon, or Sunday, February 24 from noon until 2:00 p.m. The Skate Park is located at 20840 Centre Pointe Parkway.
