Santa Fe Artist Colony

Located at the entrance of the Santa Fe Arts Colony, Bob Zoell’s design emphasizes size and height, as the fiberglass and steel sculpture stands at 34 ½ feet. A depiction of the classic artist palette, the sculptural entry statement creates a black silhouette, suggestive of an otherworldly, alien like, monster trumpeting its presence in the landscape of the industrial Santa Fe area.

Casa Heiwa

“Harmony”, a mixed media sculptural piece by Artist Nancy Uyemura was originally produced in 1996 for the Little Tokyo Service Center Affordable Family Housing project known as Casa Heiwa. Continual sunlight on coated aluminum panels caused images depicting Little Tokyo community members to fade. The restoration effort re-fabricated the artworks using porcelain enamel steel. Colors from the seasons of Los Angeles fan over a slate background forming the entrance to the building, while depicting a personal journey of the spirit and family relationships in balance.
