May 30, 2017 (Ramona) – A dedication ceremony for the “Country Lifestyle Mural,” sponsored by the San Diego Country Estates Association, will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017, beginning at 10 a.m. at the site of the mural at 325 10th Street, Ramona CA 92065.  The public is invited to attend. In addition to refreshments, attendees will receive a picture of the mural, autographed by the artist.

This is the 14th Ramona mural arranged by the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation.

The Country Lifestyle Mural illustrates the many landmarks of the San Diego Country Estates. In this collage, the artist incorporated the scenic mountainous terrain, residential areas, the hiking and horse back riding trails, and golfing opportunities.

The artist, Bob Teague, studied art at San Diego State University with a focus on graphic design. Originally from Oxnard, he lives today with his wife in Chula Vista. He was one of two artists who painted the Historic Commerce Mural at 677 Main St., Ramona.

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

Donations to help pay for the murals 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.

The main goal of the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Murals Project is to create a reason for those passing tourists to STOP to enjoy Ramona’s beauty, charm, character and heritage, and to rest a spell.  After looking to the examples set by other mural towns, a group of Ramona business people came together to launch an aggressive outdoor visual arts program, starting with murals.

The acronym, H.E.A.R.T. not only indicates Ramona as the geographic center of San Diego County, but reflects the character of the community.  “H” for Historic and Hiking, “E” for Equine, “A” for Arts, Antiques and Agriculture, “R” for scenic rural vistas and drives, and “T” for Tasting of fine wines.
