Santa Barbara Beautiful has a history of supporting the development of local beautification projects accessible to the public—often current or future local icons—and sponsoring important arts and culture events.
We have supported many projects over the years as diverse as the SB Botanic Garden Campbell Bridge Restoration; Tiny Libraries; Pianos on State Street; I Madonnari Italian Street Festival; SB Airport Terminal Visitor Entrance Medallion; East Beach Volleyball Courts upgrade; and, coming soon, the new Granada Plaza Mural.
