April 2, 2019 (Ramona) -- The Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project will hold a dedication ceremony for its 19th mural, “Bandy Blacksmith,” by artist Beata Wojcik at D’Carlos restaurant, 1347 Main St., Ramona on Saturday, April 6th at 10:00 a.m.


You are invited to attend to enjoy refreshments, meet the artist, and receive an autographed picture of the mural. Artist Beata Wojcik used an historical photo from the archives of the Guy B. Woodward Museum to paint local Ramona blacksmith Tom Bandy working at his forge. Bandy is the great-grandfather of Keith Carnevale, manager of D’Carlos; who is also co-owner along with his mother Lin Carnevale, who was married to Carl, the grandson of Bandy.


This is Beata’s first mural for Ramona. She has been creating fine art murals and interior faux finishes since 1999 – commercial/residential – indoor/outdoor – private-public. She offers a unique blend of personalized design, 3D style painting, and a variety of artistic styles to customize her murals.


As with all Ramona mural projects, viewers will be challenged to discover the “heart” icons in a “Where’s Waldo” exercise.

Donations to help pay for the mural projects can be made on the website at Donations of $100 or more will be listed on the website and on a plaque on the building. The Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation.
