California Heights

Art Mortimer

This vibrant 12 x 46 foot mural depicts this thriving California Heights neighborhood at the Turn of the 20th Century. Mortimer, who is collaborating with the California Heights Neighborhood Association, recruited local elementary and high school students to assist with plotting and painting the mural. The mural depicts the rich agricultural heritage and ethnically diverse residents of this Long Beach community and marks the entrance to the California Heights historic district.
