‘Paint Encinitas’ founder named to city arts panel


The Encinitas City Council on Aug. 19 appointed Jax Meyers to the Encinitas Arts Commission.

Last year, Meyers founded Paint Encinitas, a group dedicated to highlighting street murals and bringing more public art to the city. She’s a communications and outreach associate at The Leichtag Foundation.

Her application states she’d like to work toward a performance arts center in Encinitas, as well as a visual arts center. Meyers is replacing Andy Kastner, who moved out of the state and thus resigned, according to the agenda report.

Meyers, whose term will last until March 2018, submitted the sole application for the position. The agenda item was part of the consent calendar, which is reserved for routine items of business.
