|Santa Monica Activists Plan Vigil for Mural||
When one lives in a city as breathtakingly beautiful and unique as Santa Monica, inevitably that city will be shared with visitors.

“We’re not in Northern California where the Muir forest is,” Gates said. “We’re down in a beach community, so we’re working a local effort using local artists.”
Peace activist and perennial city council candidate Jerry Rubin, who is organizing the September 6 vigil, believes the mural is more relevant today than ever.
At the vigil, the public will be invited to write personal messages calling for "mural restoration not mural removal" on a large Save the Muir Woods Mural Art Petition.
Event organizers and Golden say that given the current global environmental situation, the mural is perhaps even more relevant today than it was 36 years ago when it was painted.
“And this mural is the same. On the one hand it was about creating a spot of beauty on Lincoln Blvd, but the mural was also always meant to be a powerful reminder of John Muir and the legacy he left, inspiring us all to think about how much we need to be stewards of our land and guardians of the future.”
