Help Plan for Art Along the Coastal Rail Trail

The trail represents a significant opportunity to incorporate and display public art! Help us craft a vision for art that welcomes visitors to Santa Cruz and highlights unique features along the trail Thursday August 11 from 6 PM to 7:30 PM at Kelly’s Bakery  402 Ingalls St. in Santa Cruz. We will invite local artists and artist teams to collaboratively develop installation ideas along the city’s portion of the trail, with artwork selected for installation as funds allow.

Please RSVP to Beth Tobey at btobey@cityofsantacruz.com


The COASTAL RAIL TRAIL is the result of a 20-year long effort to purchase the Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line. In October 2012, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) secured a 32-mile section connecting Davenport to Watsonville, placing the trail in public ownership with plans to create a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail. The City of Santa Cruz has committed to completing the section that runs from Natural Bridges to the Beach Boardwalk by 2018.
