A special project, the restoration and relocation of the “History of Transportation” mosaic mural is underway. This Mural is a cultural and historic public arts treasure listed on the California Register of Historical Resources. It was created as a Works Project Administration (WPA) Arts project, completed in 1940 and designed by a noted California artist, Helen Lundeberg. Despite extensive damage, it will be fully restored and relocated to a new Art Park located at Manchester Blvd and Grevillea Avenue.
