MainStreet Oceanside Design Committee is requesting your support for the Oceanside Mural Initiative (OMI). The program is intended to elevate the art culture in Downtown Oceanside and give our locals and tourists a place to visit and enjoy with their friends and family. The OMI program is volunteered driven, facilitated by MSO, and is taking full liability for this project. However, we need your support to ensure that the muralists are compensated for their work and to allow us to maintain the murals in your community.(Mural complete by Skye Walker, September 2017)
We are asking community members to pledge at least $5 (the price for a cup of coffee) to our GoFundMe campaign in hopes of raising $10,000. MainStreet Oceanside will match up to $10,000 to roll out phase 1 of the OMI program. We hope that you can see the value in improving our image by allowing murals to create our story and promote Oceanside as an arts destination!

It's great to be a part of Oceanside as it grows and thrives. The constant addition of murals is truly indicative of the excitement bubbling in the community. I agree that both sides of the Swami's building should be at the top of the list for the next murals! That's Oceanside's most dominant intersection.

Hope there's going to be a mural on the Swami's Cafe building - both sides
