Santa Ana: The Anaheim City Council chamber hummed with the appreciation of enthusiastic art supporters on November 4th, when the Anaheim Arts Council presented their annual awards for Art in Public Places.
With so many budget restraints this has not been a year for the City or businesses to erect large works of public art at street level. But there has been no shortage of companies beautifying the public interior spaces of their establishments.
In pride of place came The west wing of the Anaheim White House with their beautiful murals to grace the dining experience. In fact, we learnt, they change their murals every quarter!!
This spendid photograph, printed on canvas, is the work of
one of Kaiser's doctors.
The new medical facility of built by Kaiser Permanente has placed great original plaques and paintings of many styles in its public areas, and the staff turned out in force to receive their award.
Other highly awardees were those responsible for the Sally White Gardens, the sumptuous interior of Walnut Village, and three restaurants – Tandoori Garden, The Catch and Pop the Cork.
The Anaheim Rotary Clun received honorabke mention for its display of the splendid 4-faced clock at the Convention Center.
Over seventy people attended the ceremony, still licking their fingers from the buffet provided by Altrusa.
Arts Council President Carol Latham said that art in public places is essential to the sense of wellbeing of citizens and helps to stimulate a community that appreciates the value of art and culture.
