Fortuna Mural

$2,155 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 39 months

We are working to create a professional mural painted on the Ray's building in Fortuna. The mural will be a beautiful depiction of what makes Fortuna a great place to live- the redwoods, the flowers, and the amazing culture. This will be a piece of public art that will foster and communicate civic pride. Public art projects like this have the potential to become a meaningful shared expression of our collective values and aspirations. We anticipate a time when this is the most photographed spot in Humboldt County.

We are raising money for material costs and to pay professional artist to design and paint a fabulous mural.

We truly appreciate your support of the arts and the beuatification of Fortuna!

Here is some more information about the artist who will be creating the Fortuna Mural. Lucas Thornton was born in 1983 and raised in Eureka California. He attended school locally and has a passion to give back to these institutions. As a youth he worked with local muralist Duane Flatmo, painting many murals around his community. Over those years he has become Duane’s trusted protégé for restorations and job recommendations. This honor has afforded Lucas to personally paint large scale murals locally as well as having traveled internationally to spread his talent as a muralist. Walking in Duane’s footsteps he has also been an avid Kinetic Sculpture racer, proving his skills as a team builder and all-star captain. Currently he is a working fine artist, muralist, designer and artful surfboard fabricator in Eureka California. Check out the examples of his work here.
