Join the Santa Cruz Arts Commission for a celebration of the new mural at SCOPE Park by artist Sarah Bianco, titled “Jump In!” on Sunday, November 19th from 3:00pm-4:00pm at SCOPE Park – next to the Clock Tower.

The community is encouraged to bring ideas of what they want to «jump into» this coming year — personally and as a community and share it in a guest book.

The event will feature music and drumming and free hot chocolate. All ages are welcome!

Sarah Bianco’s mural was approved unanimously in August by the City’s Arts Commission, and features local children as models — jumping in a variety of poses along the Santa Cruz coastline. The mural also features web of honeycomb shapes and dots and the phrase “Jump In!”

In Bianco’s words, the mural brings “brightness” and “life” to the downtown area. “Jump In!” also has a message of inclusivity, encouraging everyone who sees it to go after what they want in life wholeheartedly. It features several portraits of local children jumping with joy, artfully placed against a colorful and geometric background. This mural is welcoming not only to Santa Cruz natives, but to visitors and newcomers alike. “Jump In!” will bring new vitality to Scope Park, while continuing to create a legacy of inclusion, community, and joy.

Moonlight Dance, was installed at Scope Park by Peter Bartczak in 1993, who graciously gave his blessing for a new mural on site.

A Farewell Party was held on July 15, 2017, celebrating the mural and his legacy. You can watch a video of the Farewell Party here: santacruzcityarts.com/blog/2017/farewell-party-for-moonlight-dance-mural
