The Mural Arts Program Committee no longer exists

Murals have become an essential component of the culture in San Marcos, banding together artists, residents and university students alike for the appreciation of art. But could the future of our murals be at stake?

On June 4, the San Marcos City Council quietly disbanded the Mural Arts Program Committee, subsequently transferring the responsibility of the committee to the Arts Commission.

The decision has not sat well with those who helped form the Mural Arts Program Committee, a key body of members responsible for establishing the nearly 30 murals around San Marcos.

Former Mayor and founding member of the Mural Arts Program Committee John Thomaides sat down with Exsar to discuss the decision by the council. For Thomaides, the decision could have dire implications for future murals.
