Our Bountiful Valley

“Our Bountiful Valley” is a mural-in-a-day designed and directed by Master Muralist, Art Mortimer. This vivid design traces the history of the fruits of our valley. From the Yokuts Indian hunter-gatherers to the Hudson Bay fur trappers, from the original dry farmers with their winter crops up to today’s irrigated farming which produces a huge variety of field crops as well as orchard crops, making our big valley one of the most productive areas in the United States. Art Mortimer has done a masterful job in bringing all of this information together for us to contemplate and enjoy. This 16’ by 30’ mural was painted in one day on the north-facing wall of 110 N Sycamore by community volunteers under Art’s direction. It was dedicated on October 21, 2007 as the culmination of the 2007 Biannual Public Art and Mural Symposium held in Manteca.
