Avila Beach Lifeguard Tower Murals

Avila Beach
Avila Beach, CA 93424



In 2015 the Avila Beach Community Foundation launched an RFP for a Public Art Project in Downtown Avila Beach. The winner, local artist Colleen Gnos, painted a series of murals reflecting Avila's past and present that were installed on two Avila Beach Lifeguard Towers and unveiled to the public in February 2016. The towers have become a popular “must-see” for both residents and visitors.
