Santa Barbara Airport Gifted Original Painting by PathPoint Artists

Santa Barbara Airport was recently gifted an original oil painting created by artists who participate in PathPoint’s community integration services. The mural was given in appreciation for providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The large-scale painting, titled “Santa Barbara Airport” depicts the main terminal, air traffic control tower, runway and planes, placed against the backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Created over a four-month period, Allan Kotler and Carlos Tunberg, were the lead painters, with fine detail work completed by Carey Rosselle, Ramiro Ceja, Elena Zumbach, and Cherie Gallagher. PathPoint staff members, Alejandra Mendoza, Gil Addison, and Beth Wickholm, helped sketch the outline and assisted individuals with the use of adaptive painting techniques.
