New mural celebrates the school’s musical excellence.

Local Ojai artist Ben Román has given the band building at Matilija Junior High School a beautiful new mural which celebrates the school’s long standing history of musical excellence.

Román grew up in Ojai as a student of art, both in school and with some of Ojai’s prominent art professionals. The 30-year-old artist now paints and draws professionally, and he specializes in large mural paintings, many of which appear in Ojai and other locations in Ventura County, as well as in Los Angeles.
