Join us in creating art in Downtown Oceanside!
The Oceanside Mural Initiative (OMI) plans on adding ten murals, making Downtown Oceanside a public art destination for locals and tourists alike. We have selected 11 out of 32 applicants to create a conceptual drawing for the first mural. In early to mid-April the top three designs will be presented to the community for a vote.
Why create murals? They bring a community together and create beauty. Murals also tell and create stories.
For the price of a cup of coffee, you can support the OMI program! We are asking community members to pledge $5 toward the OMI Go Fund Me campaign. Every dollar donated equals another dollar! MainStreet Oceanside is matching your donations up to $10,000!
Our campaign has raised $3,800 and we couldn’t have done it without generous donors believing in this program. THANK YOU! However, we still need your help to raise awareness with our neighbors.
