The "Landmarks on Del Mar" Project

(A joint project of the San Clemente Downtown Business Association, the San Clemente Historical Society and the City of San Clemente)

The goal of this project is to beautify the eight Pedestrian Rest Areas on downtown's Avenida Del Mar with special wall caps and the installation of wall and floor tile murals of the highest quality.

Each tile mural will be a reproduction of a fine watercolor rendition of a selected San Clemente historic landmark*, surrounded with Moorish tile, as illustrated below:

Each tile mural will bear a sponsor/donor plaque or other dedication.

These spectacular world class works of art will be designed to last up to 50 years or more.

As of May, 2004, the project is nearing the end of the planning stage, and will soon enter the civic approval process. The project will be funded almost entirely with charitable contributions.

As this project contemplates only 14 tile mural locations, sponsorship opportunities will be limited. Please contact the San Clemente Historical Society or Mike Cotter for more information about sponsorship, landmark selection and dedication opportunities.

Here is how a completed Pedestrial Rest Area may look after installation (this illustration uses two "generic" historic landmarks):
