YUBA CITY, CA (MPG) - Artist Shane Grammer is returning to Yuba City to create a free work of public art on Plumas Street.

Grammer was one of the muralists who participated in the Yuba Sutter Rotary Night Club-funded Mural Marathon last April which resulted in the creation of five large scale murals on the Church Street side of the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts. 

His mural depicting portraits of three women is titled “Embracing Unity: Women at the Heart of Humanity.” Grammer recently told David Read, executive director of Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture, that he had a close friend who wanted to invest in his art and fund a mural in the city of Grammer’s choice. With the recent completion of the Mural Marathon in Yuba City, Grammer “saw this as a wonderful opportunity to again contribute to the public art scene in Yuba-Sutter” by creating a new mural at no cost to the community. 

“Together, we will embark on a project to create a beautiful mural for the community. This collaboration not only allows me to bring my artistic vision to life but also strengthens my ties with Yuba City and reinforces the importance of public art. It's through these partnerships and friendships that I find inspiration and motivation to continue creating and sharing my art with the world,” said Grammer.

“I first saw Shane’s work on social media posts when he was painting gorgeous portraits on the remaining walls of burned-out buildings in Paradise after the Camp Fire devastated the town,” said Read. “I later learned that he had many friends there who lost their homes, and this was his way of offering a little bit of hope to those who had lost so much’”

The new mural will be painted on the north side of the Creative Interiors building which faces the alleyway. Business owner, Tiffani Heryford, and the building owner have approved the mural concept which features a magnificent female portrait with an impressionistic array of flowers surrounding her face. It will be two stories high and about 600 square feet. Grammer will begin the mural on June 10 and wrap up on June 15 during the Summer Stroll.

Grammer is an artist whose work spans a variety of mediums with a focus on art installations, painting, murals, and sculpture. He also works as a freelance Creative Director in the theme park industry and has art directed and managed small to large teams through conceptual design, fabrication, and installation on projects all over the world. In 2020, Shane founded the Hope Through Art Foundation devoted to restoring lives and reviving communities through art. He has been a participating muralist in Sacramento’s annual Wide Open Walls mural festival. He is an authorized Disney artist, and his clients also include Universal Studios and LEGOLAND. Originally from Chico, Grammer now lives with his family in Southern California.

“One of the most exciting aspects of my job as a full-time artist working around the world is the relationships I build along the way. Working closely with the Yuba Sutter Arts Council and the owner of the chosen building, we selected a stunning design,” Grammer said. “The vibrant paint colors and dynamic movement in the flowers will evoke a sense of beauty and energy, enhancing the local landscape and celebrating the power of public art.”
