About this Event

The City of Santa Monica invites you to a virtual grand opening event to unveil Historic Belmar Park, Santa Monica’s newest open space, and the dedicated artwork, signage and other elements of the Belmar History + Art project. The park and interpretive artwork commemorate a site that was home to a thriving African American community in the 1950s and honors the legacy of the historic Belmar neighborhood’s contributions to Santa Monica life.

The Belmar History + Art (BH+A) project commemorates the history of the African American residents and business owners of the historic Belmar and surrounding neighborhoods. Once a thriving community, this area was razed through eminent domain in the 1950s in order to make way for the Civic Auditorium and the Civic Center campus. BH+A was founded upon three co-equal elements: art, community, and history, each working in concert to creatively and collectively celebrate the legacy of African American contributions to Santa Monica life.
