Cultural Murals at Cardinal City

The National Art Honors Society (NAHS), SBHS Art Club, YAP, and a professor from Valley College have been collaborating on murals featuring important figures from history and today. These figures include Cesar Chavez, Rigoberta Menchu, Don Quixote, Frida Kahlo, Oprah Winfrey, Malala Yousafzai, Barack Obama, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Simon Bolivar.

After working for weeks on this project, they welcomed the community to join them on March 24, 2018, where Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes and Senator Connie Leyva awarded our SBHS Art Club for their amazing work.
