Two new murals to be unveiled as part of the Florin Road Community Beautification Project

Two new art murals are set to be unveiled at the Juneteenth Freedom Celebration from 12 to 5 p.m. June 10 in South Sacramento. 

As part of the City of Sacramento’s Florin Road Community Beautification Project, the free event (2251 Florin Road) is open to the public and will feature community workshops and conversations around creating a litter-free healthy environment and the legacy of agricultural scientist George Washington Carver. 

The event will also feature art activities, local vendors and poetry, music and dance performances. 

The two new murals will be unveiled at 3 p.m., and artists will be on site to have conversations with the community. 

“This project will help beautify Florin Road Corridor with public art that displays the Meadowview neighborhood’s diversity and culture,” said Arts and Culture Program Coordinator April Breis. 

The beautification project is funded with a $1.2 million CalTrans Clean California grant. The project will improve a stretch of Florin Road from Tamoshanter Way to Franklin Boulevard through public art, beautification efforts, public outreach and youth engagement. 

The free event is hosted by the Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum in partnership with the City of Sacramento Office of Arts + Culture and Department of Utilities, Florin Road Partnership and Florin Square Community Development Corporation.
