Historical mural will be dedicated

Heritage Murals of Lake Tahoe invites the community to join El Dorado County Supervisor Dave Solaro in the dedication ceremony of the newest historical mural. The second floor of the El Dorado County administrative building on the corner of Takela Drive and Lake Tahoe Boulevard is the latest addition to the Lake Tahoe Heritage Murals of Lake Tahoe.

Different in style and format, this three-panel mural depicts the S.S. Tahoe steamer as it departs from the South Shore. Waving good-bye to the steamer and its passengers is Mrs. Meyn, the wife of an early Tahoe businessman. The subject matter of this mural is timeless in nature as it captures a moment that is repeated daily on Lake Tahoe. The idea for this mural came from the archives of the Lake Tahoe Historical Society.

Eighth in the series, this mural is sponsored by the city of South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County. The artist is Don Gray, assisted by his son, Jared. Don, who lives at Murietta, Calif., has extensive experience in murals, public art, book illustrations and exhibits. Murals he has produced are located in other mural towns such as Twenty-nine Palms, El Segundo and Santa Paula, Calif., as well as Vale, Ore., Sterling Ill., and Toppenish, Wash.

The dedication ceremony is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. July 20 at the El Dorado County administrative building, 3368 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony.
