Survey: Belmar History + Art

Belmar History + Art (BH+A) is a civic commemoration project that honors the former Belmar neighborhood and African American contributions to Santa Monica’s historical development and cultural life.

BH+A began with research and community engagement that informed the ongoing educational program and permanent art that will be placed around the new Civic Center Multipurpose Sports Field, now called Historic Belmar Park.

Artist: April Banks
Historian: Dr. Alison Rose Jefferson
