Ojai Valley residents are invited to gather at the intersection of Ojai Avenue and Signal Street Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. for the pre-Ojai Day tradition of painting the event's annual mandala.
Originally a “guerrilla art project” theorized by River Sauvageau and friends, the mandala has become emblematic of the October event.
“Everybody loved it so much, we've done it every year since,” said Sauvageau.
Though the city was unaware of plans for the original mandala, they now fund the paint, she confirmed.
The 2016 mandala will consist of a spiral design with an emphasis on water, said Sauvageau.
