About the Exhibition:

In 2019, the City of San Pablo’s Civic Center will be moving to a new site to accommodate our growing City. We wish to memorialize our present iconic Civic Center and are inviting artists to paint their view of the current Spanish style Civic Center.  We suggest you visit our art gallery, the Civic Center, and our museums on any of our open days to familiarize yourself with the area we wish to be represented.
