More than 150 muralists and street artists from all over the state of California participated in Wide Open Walls’ 2017 Street Art Mural Jam at The Sacramento Bee’s former parking garage. The site is now home to The Press @ Midtown Quarter, an architectural landmark and central destination in Sacramento’s emerging Midtown Quarter. The Press was developed by SKK Developments and DeBartolo Development, and designed by C2K Architecture. Although, the art created is no longer there, many will say it was more about the experience of being part of the Mural Jam than any final product.

In September 2018, SKK Developments was proud to invite more than 300 area high school students to activate the former Mansion Inn hotel with visual art installations and live music, dance, and theatrical performances at the outdoor festival. The event raised almost $25k for local art education, attracted almost 3000 members of the public, and was a true celebration of the power of art to bridge the divide.
