The Acknowledge + Reframe Together (Reframe) Initiative of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs produces public art and civic memory projects that center community voices with the aim of creating a more just and equitable Santa Monica. In particular, Reframe focuses on centering the voices and experiences of communities of color who have been historically excluded from discourse about representation in civic spaces. Belmar History + Art (2019-2021) was a demonstration project that inspired this initiative. The City is now embarking on a public engagement process to reconsider the WPA-era mural by Stanton McDonald-Wright in the historic City Hall lobby. Help amend and celebrate Santa Monica history by taking part in Reframe!
