Circles of a Ripple

HH Civic Art James Dinh4

Circles of a Ripple by James Dinh was dedicated at the opening of the Hacienda Heights Community Center on October 25, 2014. Inspired by the topography of Hacienda Heights, the design utilizes natural materials to form a crescent shaped artwork in the land art tradition as a gathering place for visitors of the community center and park. Forty-two porcelain enamel panels, embedded in curved benches, feature historical photos and documents, creating a visual timeline of the Hacienda Heights community from its agricultural heritage to the present day.
