Sacramento Alumni Mural

As the anchor mural location for Wide Open Walls 2018, the Sacramento Mural at Sacramento State was headed up by a well-known local artist, Raphael Delgado, and was a collaborative effort of twelve different local artists, including a Sac State alumnus. Located on an exterior wall of the University Theatre building facing a parking lot, the letters to spell S-A-C-R A-M-E-N-T-O were outlined and each artist painted his or her own unique vision within, the result being an iconic destination.

These artists were chosen to tell any story they wanted with their letter:

S β€“ SV Williams
A β€“ Phillip Altstatt
C β€“ John Horton
R β€“ Raphael Delgado
A β€“ Molly Devlin
M β€“ Micah Crandall-Bear
E β€“ Lopan and Ernie Fresh
N β€“ Norm Ayles
– Ursula X. Young
O β€“ Jose Di Gregorio

Their bold and colorful creations were completed by the team’s 12th member, Jeremy Stanger, who painted 3-D drop shadows on each letter.
