Community input sought for mural

By Rhea Serran

Give your input on the second part of the MidPen mural

UNION CITY, Calif. -- MidPen Housing is sponsoring a community meeting on December 4, 2012 at the Station Center Community Room, 11th Street, Union City, at their new multi-family housing development to solicit input for the mural artwork which is in progress at that site.

Renowned muralist, Mona Caron, received the commission to paint a mural that consists of two parts: a 65-foot tall reproduction of a small wildflower that was found near the project site and a smaller, ribbon element that will contain images inspired by the history and people of Union City and be presented at eye-level.

The larger mural is almost complete and the artist is about to begin work on the smaller, ribbon element. Staff from Mid-Pen Housing and Ms. Caron will talk about the mural and what it represents. The artist would like to hear from the community about their history and ideas for the future to inspire the final design of this portion of the mural.
