Lompoc's first mural was of the “Flower Industry” painted in 1990 by Santa Monica artist, Art Mortimer. Today, Lompoc has close to 30 major commissioned murals in its inventory.

Some of these have been part of the Mural Society's Community Canvas Project and Outdoor Art Competition. Many privately created murals have also sprung up all over town.
