The Monterey Mural Lives On
by Ron Wagner

On Monday October 24, 2018 at the corner of Del Monte Avenue and Pacific Street in Monterey, California, cars drove by honking gleefully as the Monterey Mural done by my father, Guillermo Wagner Granizo, was being reinstalled on the wall at the Monterey Conference Center.
My father created several murals around California as well as various locations around the world. This mural was originally commissioned by the City of Monterey in 1983. Like many of Granizo’s city murals, this mural depicts the history of the Monterey area including 150 various scenes that tell this city’s story starting from the time the land was occupied by Native Americans including the time of the Spanish Settlers and up until Monterey became a popular tourist destination. Details such as fishing, scuba diving, golf and nature watching are all incorporated into its story. In the far upper right-hand corner of the mural flies a hot air balloon with the faces of Bing Crosby, Samuel Morse and John Steinbeck, all famous people who contributed to the development of this popular California coastline city. If you look closely you can even find Dennis the Menace whose comic series was created in Monterey. Here is a LINK to a bigger image of the mural. READ MORE ....

Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo Stands Tall in Long Beach, California

Dedication and patience are the keys to preservation, and our congratulatory salute is extended to Long Beach Heritage and the Port Authority of Long Beach whose negotiations achieved what appeared several years ago to be a pipe dream, namely the careful removal, tile by tile, of the magnificent, historically important mural that had adorned the Port Authority Administration Building for nearly 60 years. The building itself had been scheduled for imminent demolition.

Brian Worley Art & Restoration of Claremont, California tackled the job. Work commenced on September 26, 2018 with the careful marking of every tile, numbering each row and lettering each column consecutively, before the tiles were removed column by column.
