A ribbon cutting for a recently installed mural painted by Diane Smith took place on Thursday, Oct 23, 2014 at 4 PM in front of the Lawn Bowling Field across from the Santa Maria Library on McClelland Street in Santa Maria.  The mural, entitled, “Celebrate the Harvest of the Santa Maria Valley” shows the agricultural heritage of the Santa Maria Valley and features a farmer’s plow, agricultural treasures, wine tasters, and a master chef. The Town Center Gallery directed the project made possible by grants from the Santa Barbara Foundation, Altrusa International of the Central Coast, Community West Bank. The mural storage, framing, support and installation was funded through the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department.  Mayor Alice Patino and several members of the Town Center Gallery were present at the ceremony.
