Giant BCHS Mural Getting Facelift

When the giant mural of Boulder Creek High School’s mascot was dedicated on March 30, 2010, there was talk that the paint would last 50 years. But after eight years, it’s getting a much-needed facelift.

The mural with the giant jaguar was conceived by Dina Holland and created by Lindsay Boggs and Taryn Fortner of Studio 4224. The mascot is comprised of 17 aluminum panels painted individually and assembled on site. At the time, then-PTA president Myong Covert called it “the jewel on our crown.”
