The city that has hundreds of murals added a new one to its walls—this one celebrates Sacramento’s diversity. Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and councilwoman and Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby were at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the ‘Victory & Rhythm’ mural on Sunday. The newest mural to grace city walls is in the Gardenland Northgate neighborhood. You can find it at 2630 Northgate Blvd. at SP Liquor & Market. Beth Rubel was the lead artist on the mural. She is one of 10 other lead artists to spearhead the city of Sacramento’s Community Murals pilot program that started last year. The 10 murals are being put up in each of Sacramento’s eight districts. This mural is in District 3, where council member Jeff Harris serves.”Embracing diversity and culture through art and community murals has been a goal for Councilmember Harris, especially in historically underinvested neighborhoods such as Gardenland and Northgate,” a news release on the mural said.”This new mural in Gardenland Northgate Neighborhood Association (GNNA) represents the confluence of what we love in City of Sacramento, Government; uplifting neighborhoods, bringing community together, supporting our artists and creatives, and highlighting the beautiful mosaic of diversity in our city,” Steinberg said on social media. Sunday’s ribbon-cutting included free lunch to the first 100 people and a bike raffle for kids.
