Friends of the Orinda Library
The Friends of the Orinda Library have commissioned renowned mural artist Jane Kim of Ink Dwell studio to create a beautiful mural depicting the unique ecosystem of Orinda. The mural will be painted on the south-facing Library wall above the garage entrance. Production will begin in Spring 2022 and will continue for approximately six weeks.

About the Project
ConnectOrinda—the initiative to make the Theater District and the Village more accessible to each other—suggested a mural as an opportunity for a public art project. The Friends of the Orinda Library board members have generously made personal financial contributions to the project and are donating the mural to the City of Orinda. The Friends of the Orinda Library are excited to invite the entire community to participate in this effort and hope you will join us with your support.
