Downtown San Luis Obispo is a bit more colorful this week, thanks to a new public beautification project.

The work is being done by the City's Promotional Coordinating Committee to expand on the banner art beautification work initiated earlier this year along Garden Street.

The banner art was designed by local creative firm, (iii) Design, and presents bold interpretations of familiar locales and highlights celebrations of diversity that happen throughout the City:

  • Community: Ah Louis Store
  • Culture: Fremont Theatre
  • Heritage: “Iron Road Pioneers” statue in Railroad Square
  • Pride: Queen from Pride in the Plaza Celebration
  • Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa
  • Tradition: Folklorico Dancer
  • Habitat: California Poppies, Quail, and Seven Sister Peaks

“Throughout this beautification project the committee’s focus was to highlight the history, spaces and events that make our community a welcoming and inclusive place,” said PCC volunteer Dana Matteson. “Our goal is to expand this project throughout the city, spotlighting other unique features that make San Luis Obispo such a special place to live and visit.”
