New Mural at Downtown Restaurant
updated: Jun 24, 2014, 8:38 PM

By Sheldon Brown

In March 2014 Yuji Horii, the owner of the Banzai (formerly Marina) Sushi restaurant on S. California Street, approached the city about painting a mural inspired by The Great Wave, by renown Japanese artist Hokusai on the building housing his business. He was excited about the prospect of working with a local artist Daniel Elam to improve the aesthetics of the property and signify to customers that the business was operating under new ownership.

Mr. Horii anticipated a lengthy and laborious process and was pleasantly surprised when his mural proposal was approved on June 10th by the Public Art Commission, with just one public hearing. Public Art program staff worked closely with Mr. Horii to ensure that he had all of the necessary forms, background documentation and signed support letters included in his submittal, thus leading to a successful, affordable and streamlined approval process.

The Public Art Commission is encouraging private property owners interested in working with local artists to enhance their buildings with art to apply by going to: http://www.cityofventura.net/artopps and downloading the mural design approval guidelines.
