60's Era Tiles Saved

Last week construction crews carefully removed handmade tiles made in Isla Vista during the 1960's by Hugh Carroll & John Greybill.
The Redevelopment Agency will be working with the IVRPD Board and community members on how the salvaged tiles can be reused as a public art feature along Pardall or in a public park.
Please visit IV Drip, Freebirds, Dublins, Steak & Hogie House and Pho during construction and show them your support.

I'm so happy to hear that these tiles have been saved! I was so disappointed to see them missing last time I walked by. They'll make a great art piece for the new Pardall design. Thank you!
