Artwork highlights history of San Miguel
The first two sections more to come of an ambitious art-history project, Honoring Pioneers of San Miguel, were put into place this week on the fence at Awalt & Son Aqua Engineering just past Mission San Miguel. The character cut-outs, which will form a visual historical timeline, are the handiwork of the Kalar family, whose roots here go back to the 1800s. Lillian Larsen students made pencil drawings, which were used for the characters. Read the story on www.discoversanmiguel.com. The project is spearheaded by the San Miguel Resource Connection.
