    Unveiling of Public Art Mural by Armando Cid

    Come to the unveiling of a public mural in the Alkali Flat neighborhood of Sacramento. Ceremonies will begin at 11 am followed by a community celebration.

    The 6’ high by 20’ wide mosaic mural designed by late artist Armando R. Cid, and fabricated by his family and friends has been installed on the west facing façade of the Washington Square Apartments, adjacent to Zapata Park. The mural was commissioned by the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission (SMAC) in conjunction with the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) and the California Housing Opportunity Corporation (CHOC).

    The brightly colored ceramic, porcelain and glass tile mosaic replaces one of two murals installed by Armando Cid 34 years ago. The original murals, “Sunburst” and “Olin”, were two of the first public artworks commissioned by the City of Sacramento’s Art in Public Places Program.

    This mural, in addition to a new playground and community garden at Zapata Park, celebrates the revitalization of the community and serves as a neighborhood landmark representing a vital part of the historic significance of Alkali Flats.
