La Pen?a Cultural Center has partnered with Richmond Art Center to produce the 2nd Annual Bay Area Mural Festival this fall to bring together 10 master muralists and 2 East Bay youth groups through a series of artist residencies and workshops culminating in the painting of 10 environmentally themed murals in Richmond, CA. Artists will paint for one week and end the festival with a closing celebration at Richmond Arts Center with speakers, community painting, and performances by local musicians and dancers, which will be open to the public.

This festival focuses on a series of temporary, site-specific murals produced in and around Richmond. Last year’s festival highlighted 13 new works produced by an incredible roster of Bay Area artists, including Juana Alicia, Dave Young Kim, Daz and Los Pobres Artistas.
