I found this empty sign on the side of the road.
I had seen it for years. Most of it still swirled steel glinting. Driving and thinking that what ever I could say on this sign had to be a short word to be seen while driving. Corner and big view is vying for a viewers attention.
I wanted a word that would describe itself and its location.
It would cause me to turn around and come back to see it up close.
If you are traveling from Warner Springs to Temecula it will be on the right side of the road near Emerald Creek Winery, Highway 79 south.
Welcome to Nina’s Blog. I am quickly classified as a public artist, generally meaning art for the public realm. It is different than a gallery/museum way of thinking. My way of making public art has manifested more traditionally as a site specific sculpture for a fire station. It encompasses some gorilla installations, some home and environmental designs and most recently many apartment developments. Usually having a theme, like; solar powered, low income, green, and educational. Apartment complex art is not interior design. The viewing audience is a hybrid of the general public and private art in a public space. I enjoy the variety.
