work in Progress
The new Azusa Citrus Station Goldline station will extend light rail well into the San Gabriel Valley. This public art commission consists of a 28’ long glass canopy that will shelter the ticket vending machines & map cases, and 4 cast concrete benches embedded with colorful mosaics. The station will be built on land with a long horticultural history.
The Fan Palm Glass Canopy recalls stately and iconic Palm Drive with its rare stand of California Fan Palms (Washingtonia filifera) which are thought to have been planted in 1899. These trees have come to symbolize Azusa, and continue to provide the people of Azusa with an important connection to their City’s past.
Each of the mosaics will evoke one of the important plants that are strongly associated with the Azusa foothills:
Oranges & Honey Bees
The infusion room at the new Cone Health Cancer Center will feature a wall of art glass comprised of 5 panels 36" x 78" each.The glass art is based on a photograph taken by the artist of the Haw River which runs near the medical center. The beautiful 110 mile river is considered endangered, but able to be restored. The Haw provides habitat for wildlife, drinking water, recreational and scenic areas. The artist's photograph includes the reflection of an inactive brick textile mill, one of many standing along the edge of the Haw. The interpretation rendered in glass brings light and color to the river.
