Did you know we have some very special murals right here in Coronado? During the 1930s, the federal government sponsored artists who created works of art throughout the country. Ours can be found at Coronado High School. You may even see Donal Hord’s The Legend of California, a set of seven panels carved from limestone when you drive by the school on Seventh near D. Children are invited to learn about the murals and make their own take-home artwork. Kids will have fun using many different mural techniques from painting to mosaic during this hands-on program. Ages 4-12. R.S.V.P. encouraged. www.coroandohistory.org or (619) 435-7242.
The Coronado Community read is made possible by the Friends of the Coronado Public Library and the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission and in partnership with the Coronado Historical Association, Coronado High School, the Coronado Recreation Department, Coronado Playhouse, and Sharp Coronado Hospital.
