We are pleased to announce that on July 7th, 2012, the Santora will be celebrating its 84th years since its construction, and 10 years since its inception as a building for the arts. In seeking community engagement for the planning of this
magnificent event, the artists of the Santora, in collaboration with the United Artists of Santa Ana, cordially invite
you to participate in the Santora Building of The Arts’ 84th Birthday Celebration Poster Contest.

The celebration will highlight the history of the building, showcasing it as a center for the continued vitality
