Key Market Mural
In late fall of 2018, CATA partnered with Dehoff’s Key Market at 1063 Upton Street in Redwood City to create a new community mural, celebrating fresh, local foods in addition to the longstanding food businesses of the Dehoff family. The Dehoff family has lived in Redwood City for over ninety years. Their previous businesses included a lumber yard and a boat shop, either of which the artist might incorporate in the mural.
Later in the spring, CATA publicized a Request for Proposals for the mural design, receiving 17 submissions from established and emerging artists around the Bay Area. A panel of community art advocates and artists selected one winning proposal from Nick Sirotich of San Francisco. The final mural was designed and illustrated by Nick and painted by local artist Marlon Yanes.
During mural implementation, we raised over $600 for Second Harvest Food Bank to emphasize the importance of having access to fresh, local foods. According to Second Harvest Food Bank, “an estimated 700,000 Silicon Valley residents — 1 in 4 — are food insecure, meaning they are at risk of hunger.” While Second Harvest serves 260,000 of those resident, there are still another 440,000 who struggle on a daily basis.
