On April 25th 2015, one year to the date of the tragic murder of Maren Sanchez, a small group of dedicated people created a committee to bring Maren's mom’s vision to life. They commemorated Maren’s life through the Peace Love and Music Festival and by creating a scholarship fund that would give to students for decades to come. A key component of the festival was a mural contest. The guidelines were to embody everything that Maren stood for, and to incorporate a vision of Peace Love & Music.
Two murals won and were displayed in town billboards for a month, to say thank you for all of the hard work that was put into making the day unforgettable.
