Opening reception 6:30pm. Meet the artists!
The owners of Oceanside’s newest museum, the Muramid Mural Museum and Art Center have planned an amazing evening of wonderful art to celebrate this special day that honors women.
The first annual creative program includes painters, sculptors, photographers, dancers, singers, and spoken word with an opening reception beginning at 6:30 pm.

A special tribute and performance will be presented by Britteny Baranson and Chantel Harris from the Mountain Shadows Outreach Center where the Muramid Mural Museum has been involved with their creative Art Miles Mural Project with California State University San Marcos and other projects.
“It is a special night that will honor women everywhere and celebrate the diverse talent and accomplishments that may often be taken for granted or go unnoticed, but this opportunity to showcase the creative part of women and their “work” was just too good to pass up in our amazing venue in Artist Alley” says Joanne Tawfilis on behalf of her and husband, Fouad Tawfilis. “We are proud, excited and anxious to keep the momentum going forward and building upon what has become a growing arts hub in North County by so many great trailblazers in our beautiful City of Oceanside. Our goal is to be an inclusive Art Center that will host an interactive community stage for local, national and international artists”.
The Muramid Mural Museum is the FIRST mural museum in the world and specializes in exhibition events that will showcase the nearly 5,000 UNA USA San Diego Art Miles Mural Project canvas’s collection of murals the Tawfilis’ have facilitated for nearly two decades and is located at 212 N. Coast Highway in Suite F of Artists Alley between Mission Ave. and Pier View Way.
