The City of Santa Monica will host a virtual grand opening celebration to unveil Historic Belmar Park, Santa Monica’s newest open space, the dedicated public art installations, on-site historical panels, and time capsule dedication commemorating Santa Monica’s African American community. This is the culmination of the Belmar History + Art (BH+A) project, a collaboration between the City of Santa Monica and community leaders to mark the site of this historical injustice and tell the stories of the historical Black community members who lived there until being displaced in the 1950s. The new park showcases an outdoor exhibition that includes the public art installation “A Resurrection in Four Stanzas,” created by artist April Banks, and historical panels that illuminate the history of the Belmar neighborhood and surrounding areas created through the work of historian Dr. Alison Rose Jefferson.
This virtual event will take place on Zoom. To register for the virtual grand opening celebration, visit santamonica.gov/historicbelmarpark. A recording of the virtual event will be rebroadcast on CityTV Channel 16 on Monday, March 1, 2021, at 8 p.m., and available on the City's Youtube channel.
