The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department is pleased to host a temporary exhibition of animal sculptures this summer at Preisker Park, 330 Hidden Pines Way. The exhibition will be brought to the park on Wednesday, June 27th and consists of four sculptures.

Residents will have the opportunity to decorate the interactive ram during the reception and community painting on Saturday, July 7th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.    

This program made possible through a partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and The Squire Foundation.
